As the owner of a firing range in Surrey, BC, said on the radio last Friday regarding the shootings, "Gun ownership is a privilege." You have to earn it.
The process isn't perfect. A gunman opened fire last June in a Toronto mall leaving one dead, two critically injured, and eight victims total. If the U.S. followed the Canadian model, would that have averted the slaughter in Connecticut? Impossible to say. But we have to start somewhere, sometime. Why Not Now? But the Stupid Crazy People yammer endlessly about a constitutionally protected right. And how stricter gun laws will only make it harder for law abiding citizens to get a gun. And that Criminals and Crazies will always find a way to obtain a gun if they want one. And after all the yammering ... nothing will get done ... again.
Now how in the world could I conflate the foundation of Christianity and the complete lack of a rational gun-control policy? Because for these two examples of insanity to continue, you need the consensus of a Confederacy of Dunces. AKA the United States of America.
Merry G*ddamn Christmas...
