The problem is that when we react emotionally we often, find ourselves enacting “feel good” measures that create additional bureaucracy, additional government control, additional taxes and a curtailing of personal freedoms that far too often do nothing to address the problem or in some cases exacerbate it.
Those on the left side of the isle might pause and consider the emotion of 9-11 and the responses that might have been better, if dealt with in a less emotional way. I have found the media’s 24/7 wailing, and pathetic attempts to make their selves part of the story disgusting. I suspect that in the end our honorable congress people will shove through legislation much like the previous one that will deal more with how some firearms look than their actual function or capabilities.
What would your gun control measures look like?
