Here for those interested is Sam Harris's follow up and response to some criticism, not limited to guns it also addresses violence/self defence. Not sure if he answers any of the critiques raised here, will be reading it later.
If any of you Bullies wouldn't mind indulging a nosey Brit I would love an opinion on this video:
I think he makes sense ( but I have shallow knowledge of the subjects). I think he misses the point that the Armed Forces could refuse to fire upon citizens..(a point Devil made), but he may well come to that in the follow up Videos.
This is purely for the selfish reason that I like to argue with friends, most of whom are of the ' dumb yanks should just ban guns ' mentality. So help me out here.
