“One would hope that there will be some political capital to reform the way in which we handle gun and gun violence in this country,” said MSNBC’s Alex Wagner while covering the tragic story of a school shooting in Connecticut.
This, of course, is the norm for these sort of stories. The gun control fanatics latch on to some high-profile incident inolving guns to perpetuate their drive to disarm Americans. Because never let a good crisis go to waste, right?
But I don’t get the logic. We know that gun control laws only keep guns out of the hands of people who are inclined to follow those laws. Criminals have no such inclinations. In fact, the reason why the criminals who perpetrate these mass shootings tend to pick places like schools and universities is because the people there are unarmed.
The gun control zealots would respond to these tragedies by forcing all of America to be as disarmed and vulnerable as these enclaves of no gun zones which are the chosen targets of mass-killers.
It makes no logical sense.
