One Gun A Month - The Evening Bulletin June 28, 2006

As predicted, the usual response to tragic violent crime is to place restrictions on those who didn't do it. The Second Amendment, the right to keep and bear arms, does not permit individuals to misuse firearms. There are already laws against murder, rape, robbery and all other violent crimes to include very serious laws against buying firearms for others. What have we accomplished when we unfairly penalize those who pose no threat in the first place?
The answer is to deal harshly with violent criminals and leave the innocent alone. Current laws already impose appropriate restrictions on the use of any weapon. Adding another flawed law (for criminals to ignore) such as "one gun a month" only diverts attention from solutions and lets ineffective leaders off the hook for another election cycle. It's time to start getting tough on crime, which does not mean getting tough on the law-abiding gun owner. Another option is to start getting tough on politicians who would try to deceive us.
