About That 'Gun Control' Thing

FB Friend Don Cooper posted this succinct and factual piece. If you are 'pro gun', his logical deliniation may come in handy. If you are of the 'anti-gun' group, you might want to read and consider this with as open a mind as you can muster.

Even good people get emotional and do irrational things sometimes. Irrationality is a part of our humanity, there's nothing we can do about it.

Some believe that's why guns should not be readily available to people.

At first this seems reasonable but after closer examination the even more dangerous consequences become apparent.

"Quaint notion" because in order to become Law, the very ones who will be adversely effected must vote for it.
Any such solution requiring the force of a law is DOA; career suicide is a non-starter in every occupation I can think of.
But how about this: a local ‘citizen’s groups’ comprised of the candidates’ constituents who demand everyone in the race take a Forensic Audit Oath comparing their net worth prior to running and prior to running for re-election? The Candidate will be required to explain the sources of any sudden increases during his term. Along with being absolutely local registered voters, the group would have to be dedicated energetic activists, sufficiently fun…
