the more the government creates the need for a black market in weapons the more the government creates unnecessary and damaging violence in our society. i realize the people we elect and the people they appoint are not very knowledgeable and intelligent but even people of low intelligence and limited ignorance should realize that there is a "law of uninteded consequences".

The conventional wisdom among the geniuses who are paid to tell us what to think about and how to think about it has been that the National Rifle Association's Wayne LaPierre had lost his mind when he proclaimed, after the tragedy in Connecticut, that the way to stop a bad guy with a guy is with a good guy with a gun.

LaPierre went on to suggest that schools hire armed guards to protect the children against some nut showing up with a weapon and an agenda.

The popular press and the social elite went bat --- well, they disagreed.
