This week in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, five families’ loved ones will never come home. Eight lives are forever altered. The hand wringing, finger pointing and politicizing began before the Muslim terrorist shooter in a gun-free zone who didn’t use an “assault” rifle was even arrested.
Even well-intended, well-informed people grope for answers and are sometimes deceived. Some concede more gun registry. Some say to eliminate automatic weapons, large magazines or even certain guns. Some say to add more law enforcement, even if it creates a police state. Some say to fund mental health to diagnose and withhold guns from those who are mentally unstable.
All of those answers are not only wrong, they are dead wrong.
