"Or you can just admit that burglary is a really bad example of a gun crime. Burglars are overwhelmingly non-confrontational criminals."
I think you are reading far too much in to what I said. I used burglary where a gun is used is *NOT* a victimless crime. And it is not. And somehow, you read that to mean that I was trying to say burglaries were typically violent.
Or you can just admit that burglary is a perfectly good example for my purposes.
"You can take that to mean that the heightened penalties for armed burglary vs unarmed burglary have successfully dissuaded nearly all burglars from carrying guns."
That really wasn't even close to the argument I was making. Maybe you should re-read it. Because with your response it APPEARS you read that keeping guns away from school will keep killers away from schools -- which is the exact opposite of the argument I made. It will keep law-abiding folk from carrying guns on or near schools. That is all.
