The Slippery Slope of Gumbmint

Congress OKs Gun Bill

Congress on Wednesday passed a bill designed more easily to flag prospective gun buyers with documented mental problems

You know that saying about bad cases (i.e., Va Tech) leading to bad laws? Well, this bill is Exhibit A.

In a perfect world the Prez would veto and there would be sufficient votes to block an override. Unfortunately that’s not going to happen.

Since we’re on the topic, however, we might was well get in our rant of the evening:

The way to deal with Va Tech-style massacres is *not* to enact additional gun laws and regulations. Especially not of the federal variety.

The better approach would be to *reduce* as much as practicable so-called “gun control” laws.

That way the next time some mental midget decides to go postal his fellow citizens instantly would have the means by which to fashion an appropriate response; namely, by shooting the bastard down in his tracks.
