Control leaders, not the guns


By Cal Thomas

IF LAWS WERE enough to deter criminal behavior prisons would be empty.

The latest effort to “control” guns in America is as likely to deter someone intent on breaking the law as outlawing lust would affect one’s libido. What’s in a heart can’t be controlled by restricting what’s in a hand.

Following the Newtown tragedy, President Obama vowed to seek the passage of an assault weapons ban and hastily assembled an administration-wide gun control task force, an effort that amounts to little more than a political act designed to impress what Rush Limbaugh calls “low-information voters.” Government must be seen doing something to keep mad men from shooting children and moviegoers, even if that something will likely prove ineffective.

Dear Mr Thomas
The National Rifle Association publishes several different magazines, and the one called First Freedom has a political slant. It addresses the current fight for our gun rights that they are engaged in on Capital Hill. It alo has a section called the Armed Citizen, a section where people submit their stories about defending lives and property with their guns. The NRA is the only reason we have the Right to keep and bear arms at this time. They are keeping watch, every day, and speaking for us at the United Nations. They are the strongest pro gun lobby in America. You should join, if you believe we have the right to own guns and the right to self defence.
Thank you for your time,
Ramona Earhart
