People are constantly going on and on about how we have too many guns, but then they say they don’t want to take our guns. They fail to address guns in criminal hands but instead focus on those firearms being sold lawfully.
With this story, desperate to try and link increased gun sales to school violence, it’s almost sad. You’d think that people would understand that correlation doesn’t equal causation, yet they don’t. Then again, they still think gun control works.

Media Continues Meltdown Over Gun Sale Surge
[For certain definitions of “works” gun control does work:
- If the objective is to make a population unable to resist a tyrannical government then yes, it works fairly well. See, for example, the Weapons Control Act of 1938 and the formation of the USSR.
- If the objective is to enable criminals in their exploitation of innocent people, then yes. it works fairly well.
