“If guns kill people, how does anyone get out of a gun show alive?”

“Guns don’t kill people—people kill people” is a famous pro-gun (pro-Second Amendment) saying. “If guns kill people, how does anyone get out of a gun show alive?” is a jocular pro-gun saying, also showing that “guns don’t kill people.”

“If guns kill people, how does anyone get out of a gun show alive?” has been cited in print since at least July 2012, when it was featured on a poster.

This will rank up there with my favorite quote about guns. “Outlaw guns and only outlaws will have guns.”
