Since America is infested with millions of murder instruments, we don’t know whether control laws ever can reduce the death toll. But conscientious leaders should keep trying. Closing the gun show loophole would be a plausible step.
One persons “murder instruments” are another persons life saving self-defense tools–which we all have a constitutionally protected right to keep and bear.
America is also “infested” with millions of homosexuals, Jews, Muslims, and people with non-white skin but that doesn’t mean their rights should be infringed no matter how plausible it is to some bigots.–Joe]
