There’s no evidence that gun laws stop killings

I just received a newsletter email from one of the U.S. senators. In it, he called for everyone to come together and stand united, which I agree with. We are all Americans. The people killed in Orlando were Americans. For me, the other things that make us different are secondary to what makes us one – we are Americans.

Then, he went on to say, “It is also past time to finally muster the political courage to say enough is enough and pass common sense laws to keep guns out of the hands of terrorists and violent criminals.”

Does anyone have a law that has successfully kept guns out of the hands of terrorists and violent criminals? Can you please send me a link to it? Will that link take me to the gun laws of Chicago where hundreds of innocent people are killed by criminals with guns every year? Will it take me to the gun laws in France (Bataclan, Charlie Hebdo)? Or, would it take me to the gun laws of the five countries that have had more mass shootings than the U.S. – Norway, Finland, Slovakia, Israel, and Switzerland?

Trending: The Immigration Monster… Or Failed Oligopoly?

What are we trying to accomplish? What evidence is there that gun laws have successfully stopped criminals from killing people? Would it be better if Orlando looked more like Boston or Brussels than San Bernadino or Paris?

We are all Americans. A radical Jihadist killed Americans with guns. Millions of American gun owners did not.

Will I start waiting for the law someone has that keeps guns out of the hands of terrorists and violent criminals? I’m still waiting for my annual $2,500 check for the health care cost savings Obama promised with Obamacare.
