School Safety and the Placebo of Gun Control

“We have to do something.”

I’ve heard that phrase time and again from politicians and gun control spokesmen. With some 23 thousand firearms regulations already on the books, it seems that we’ve done quite a lot that hasn’t worked. Those ineffective laws don’t stop the urge for more feel-good regulation after the murders in Parkland, Florida.

We tried mandatory background checks. Those laws didn’t stop the mass murder at Umpqua Community College in Oregon. Background checks didn’t stop the murders at Isla Vista, California, or at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California. I chose these particular examples because Oregon and California have some of the most restrictive firearms transfer laws in the country..including mandatory background checks. They already failed, but I expect the gun-prohibitionists to call for more background checks.

We tried gun-free zones, but they failed too. Rather than stop mass murderers, gun-free zones seem to attract these killers. In fact, almost all of our mass murders took place in gun-free zones. The reason is easy to understand. Mass murderers don’t want to get into a gun fight. Instead, they want to shoot innocent victims who can’t shoot back. Gun-free zones effectively disarmed the honest people who were never a threat in the first place. Unfortunately, also we disarmed the honest people who could slow down or stop the murderer. Expect to hear more calls for gun-free zones. .......

Rob Morse helps describe just how little futher gun control is going to achieve anything useful at all - other than infringe further on our Second Amendment rights. The predictable knee-jerk reaction is well under way since the Florida massacre, with celebrities throwing huge sums at the planned marches - all determinied to evicerate law abiding gun ownership. For those wanting a succinct analysis of the dreaded "AR", take a brief visit here.
