It's Always the Gun
Whenever a “crazy” shoots up a school, or somewhere else guns are banned, they blame the GUN, not the man. They come out and demand that more of the same useless “gun laws” that have been made for years by short-sighted people who can't think straight have been making. Politicians listen, and then go out and make more useless laws that do nothing but make “sitting ducks” of innocent citizens who then have no defense, and soon some other idiot goes out and gets a gun in one of many ILLEGAL ways, and goes on a shooting spree. Then somebody closely connected with somebody in the shooting demands more of those useless laws, and get them. Then it happens again. And again. And again. In the recent Oregon shooting it is the father of the shooter who is demanding more of the same, useless laws. In the case of Gabby Giffords (after Jared Laughner scrambled her brains with a bullet in Arizona) she even started her own anti-gun organization with the help of her ex-astronaut husband, to demand more useless gun laws.
There have been many other examples, but I won't bore you with them. Suffice it to say, ALL of them have set their sights on the GUN, which is an “easy target,” but which is not at fault. Without the hand of a fool pulling the trigger, a gun can't harm ANYBODY. But NOBODY ever suggests punishing the USE of a gun in a crime. It's ALWAYS the gun. What to do about the “crazies” is another question, to which I don't think there is an answer. Making LAWS against gun ownership is useless,. They ALWAYS get their guns. No matter what laws you make, they WILL always get their guns. They need to simply TAKE NOTICE when such a crazy “sends up a signal” that he/she is thinking about killing a bunch of people, as most of them do, and make some laws that allow the “authorities” to do something about them BEFORE they kill a bunch of people. The real solution is to allow honest people to be armed and to defend themselves. Maybe then such crazies would be shot, themselves before they could kill as many people. But the “anti-gun fools” won't even entertain that idea. (The Blaze)
