Another mass shooting.
In a “gun free zone.”
With a fence.
And security checks at the entrances.
And the “best” gun control in the country.
That’s right. In a state which is a gun-controller’s wet dream, in a fenced “gun free zone,” with security checkpoints…a psychopath managed to use a (illegal in California) so-called “assault weapon” to murder innocent people.
All this grade-A, top-choice gun control FAILED.
What’s the answer? Clearly, it is not so simple as making guns illegal. Even if we could snap our fingers and make every gun in America disappear into thin air today, tomorrow they would begin to be replaced. Because let’s face it…if we can’t keep several million human beings from crossing our border without permission, or find them later if they do…what makes us think we’ll have any more success with guns? (Which are typically much smaller and easier to smuggle and hide than a human being.)
And they’d be smuggled in through our southern border, from a country with an astronomical murder rate, despite gun control laws which permit its citizens to legally purchase only one gun, which must be purchased at the single, Army-controlled gun store in Mexico City.
The fact is, the question of how to stop some people from going out and stacking bodies like cord wood has stymied us since the beginning of time. Manage to take away all the guns…and sharpened strips of metal (knives)…and sticks…and rocks…and there will still be that one guy who is bigger and stronger than everyone else and will happily kill anybody in his way.
What then is so simple? Figuring out what doesn’t stop violence…and it’s gun control.
