Guns are not the problem.
Is everyone up in arms to take cars away from law abiding citizens because some choose — yes choose — to drink and drive?!?
We already have strict laws against drunk driving, so why are there still drunk driving fatalities? Maybe we need to make the laws even more strict? That should do it!!!
Banning guns from law abiding citizens will not prevent criminals and the criminally insane from obtaining guns or other means to carry out their crimes.
In Connecticut many people have been emboldened to think they are justified in taking guns away from everyone because of the actions of one insane young man. The Governor of Connecticut put together a commission to find ways to prevent another tragedy (read: ban all guns). This commission held hearings to ostensibly "listen" to what citizens have to say on the topic.
One citizen who they allowed to speak was Henson Ong, a legal immigrant from the Philippines.
Mr. Ong concluded his testimony with this quote by U.S. Circuit Court Chief Judge Alex Kozinski:
My excellent colleagues have forgotten these bitter lessons of history. The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime usually do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed only for those exceptionally rare circumstances when all other rights have failed. A free people can only afford to make this mistake once.
