...this article by Nicholas J. Johnson in the Wake Forest Law Review might ruin your day.
My summary: Stop wasting time trying to take away people's guns. It won't work. Deal with it.
300,000,000 guns is a lot of guns to confiscate, especially from people armed with guns.
(thanks to D.K. for sending me the article)
And then as I'm writing this I see this story about another crazy murderer in Belgium (what is it about Belgium? They seem nice enough...). He stabbed a dozen or so babies and infants and three adults. Three dead all together.
Then he got on his bike and road away (and was soon apprehended).
While gun lovers will probably point out that this wouldn't have happened if only the babies had been packing, I can't help but be happy that this murderous nut didn't have a gun.
But liking countries with fewer guns (much fewer) doesn't suddenly make gun control in this country any more possible.
