If what is immediate is saving human lives and what is delayed is the absence of reformed firearm legislation, then immediate firearm legislation is preferable to the delay of human safety.
2. Truth is preferable to opinion.
If guns pose a threat to human lives and firearm legislation is based on opinion, then firearm legislation should rely on truth because truth is preferable to opinion.
3. What is less painful is more preferable to what is more painful.
The pain of losing the right to bear arms is less painful than the loss of human life.
