Legislation like the Brady Bill ignores the fact that violence unfortunately has been a fact of life long before firearms were invented. Outlawing guns does not prevent violence, but it does prevent smaller, older, disabled or less powerful persons from effectively defending themselves against larger and stronger attackers.
Once the anti-gun left has a cause or celebrity to rally around, rational thought goes out the window as they push their proposed legislation.
Sarah Brady is still a leading figure in the anti-gun movement. Jim Brady is still an advertisement for gun control.
