"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."

Barack Obama NEVER lets a Crisis go to Waste

Gun Control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

Gun Control laws will NOT work for two primary reasons:
1) Criminals Do NOT obey laws - Studies show that most criminals acquire guns through friends or through theft, which means they’re able to bypass background checks and other well-meaning restrictions. Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook shooter, stole the guns he used from his mother.

2) There are close to 300 million privately owned firearms in the United States. Even if Congress passed a law banning the sale of firearms tomorrow — which would violate the Second Amendment — it would be decades before the supply of guns decreased significantly, especially considering that many guns are operational 100 years or more after they’re manufactured. The government wouldn’t be able to eliminate this enormous stock of guns — buy-back programs would only go so far and straight-up confiscation would violate the Fourth Amendment. Meanwhile, illegal guns would flood into the U.S. from other countries.
