The waterfall



Much of the nation is alarmed about all the recent school shootings. It seems there is another shooting almost daily, either at a school, theater, or any other public place.

The common knee-jerk reaction among bleeding heart politicians is to ban firearms for the law-abiding citizen. This is a reaction most nonthinking people would have, hence politicians cling to it because it is a knee jerk reaction and a highly charged emotional response, one that will gather them a lot of votes. There are at least two things wrong with this convoluted reasoning.

First, law abiding citizens don’t shoot defenseless people, and second, criminals do what they do best, break laws. There isn’t a law that criminals don’t like to break. Adding another unenforceable law isn't going to solve the problem.
