Combining the two tragedies in Aurora, Colo., and Oak Creek, Wis., into a single question about gun control is tantamount to asking if we should make it harder for consumers to get the make and model of the automobile driven by a drunken driver after he crossed the center line and killed a family of four.
Yep. In most other contexts I think your average person would think the gun control crowd’s prescription was sheer madness and hysteria. But we treat guns differently. Probably because the mentality that lead to thinking like this is still alive and well in the public mind.
