Legislation is so old fashioned and messy. Who needs it? Certainly not Obama. He will just issue an Executive Order banning guns. Boehner will do nothing—he might even cry. And if it makes it to the Supreme Court, Justice Roberts will cave as Obama has found some lever to bend him to his will.
Its not that I don’t feel for the Victims, I do. Its that I am not about to give up my freedoms in response to every tragedy. Freedom is not free. Anytime you give people freedom, the nutcases will occasionally take advantage of it to cause mayhem. But giving up your freedom for “safety” has far worse consequences. How many people get killed each year in auto accidents? Funny, I don’t hear anyone proposing to ban cars.
Ben Franklin (I think) said that he who gives up freedom for safety deserves neither.
