'Gun Control' Fails Again at
the Pittsburgh Synagogue

A murderer killed unarmed victims at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Many of us have asked how long will we allow mass murders to continue. We know the answer. Mass murders will continue until we stop them. Religious institutions are the target of criminal violence hundreds of times a year. That data comes from the dedicated individuals who work to protect our churches and synagogues. It seems that every politician running for office also has an opinion on the recent attack. Fortunately, we can, and we have, come up with better ideas than that.

Let’s look at evidence rather than at campaign talking points. Here is what failed in Pittsburgh and here is what works to stop mass murder... .......

The bottom line is that basically no amount of supposed 'gun control' will in itself prevent a mass murderer, even if that person obtained firearms supposedly legally. The cry every time there is such a tragedy is "ban guns", which we know is no answer - firstly, a determined aggressor will always be able to find weapons and secondly, trying to punish the majority for the sins of the few is nothing more than a flagrant denial of rights.
