Just another gun law

An intelligent, well-made, and well-taken point from Ron Paul – or at least his people – which is something I don’t usually rush straight to him for, but which is nevertheless salient and important to note:

A person steals guns, (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), shoots and kills his own mother (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), transports these guns loaded (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), brings guns onto school property (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), breaks into the school (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), discharges the weapons within city limits (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), murders 26 people (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), and commits suicide (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW).

And there are people in this country that somehow think passing ANOTHER LAW banning guns would protect us from someone like this. If you haven’t noticed, people like this are not concerned about breaking laws – they only care about fulfilling their own twisted agenda.

As I’ve argued from the beginning – here, among other places – any kind of law banning weapons fundamentally misses the point we should be learning and gleaning from the tragedies in places like Newtown and Aurora.

    Bingo! That is exactly correct and to the point. That is why no law, executive order nor any other idiotic idea coming from our worthless leaders will stop crazy people from killing with guns. When will we hear a logical idea come from our government? Opps, that is an oxymoron statement.
