Adam Lanza, Gun Control and the TSA

Looks like I fled the Nutmeg State just in time. The state lost its collective mind in the aftermath of the Newtown school murders last December. My main beef with Connecticut's new anti-gun laws is, even had they been in place all last year, they'd have done absolutely NOTHING to stop Adam Lanza. It's like if an unlicensed teenager stole a car and killed people with it, so the state responded by denying driver's licenses to all teens. For that matter, it's reminiscent of the TSA's molesting policies -- the government needs to quit reacting to bad people by lashing out at good people. Squeezing my tits before I get on a plane wouldn't have stopped 9/11 anymore than these bogus anti-second amendment laws would've stopped Adam Lanza.

Yeah, Colorado has been really awful about that. I think it's going to cost the Democrats the state house and maybe the governorship.

A sizeable fraction of humanity needs theater like this to reassure them that what happened to others can't happen to them, even though it surely can.

Some sympathy is called for. They're stuck on a planet with seven billion apes of a type just smart enough to be really dangerous, and they're having a hard time dealing with it. Denial is the only thing that lets them get through the day.

Good article but a good many of our "leaders" and their sycophants are so far gone common sense isn't a skill set.
