An idea to end gun violence??
So predictably, within an hour or two after the story broke, the usual suspects were clamoring for tighter gun control laws.
Only one problem: The nut who did the shooting didn't get the guns he used from a gun show, or a dealer, or mail-order. Instead he grabbed his mother's gun, fatally shot her, then took the rest of her arsenal.
Awfully hard to stop something like that by passing a law.
Oh, and last I heard there were already laws against shooting people. But in every case where someone shoots someone else, they totally ignore that clear, well-known law. But somehow if congress passes just one more law to do...[fill in the blank]...criminals and crazy people will suddenly start obeying the law. It's a miracle.
Of course, Obama could change the equation by issuing an executive order confiscating all guns and banning all sales. If the Left wants to end gun violence, that's a plan to get behind and push hard. Because what better time to do it than in the first few months after the last election he'll have to face?
