What happened in Connecticut and earlier this year in Aurora was tragic. Still, it would be nice to see one suggestion from the pro-gun control side that might actually have prevented either of them. Short of confiscating every firearm in the country – which seems virtually impossible – none of the solutions I’ve seen suggested would do a damned thing to prevent gun crimes.
Also, I’d love to see some logic explaining how the (admittedly horrific) actions of a very few disturbed individuals somehow justifies, say, taking away my daughter’s right to protect herself with a handgun someday. Because I don’t quite see the connection.
But what do I know?
UPDATE: The appropriately-named Jeff at protein wisdom has further thoughts. Read it all. I’ll wait.
