Quote of the day–Jeff Cooper

Family member and full-time California cop Gabriel Suarez, who is gradually working up to his Ace Rating in police actions, contributes the following:

Gun control is a band-aid, feeling good approach to the nation’s crime problem. It is easier for politicians to ban something than it is to condemn a murderer to death or a robber to life in prison. In essence, ‘gun control’ is the coward’s way out.
