It didn't work the last time, so...ummm...let's try it again, only this time, we'll MEAN it!
I understand that the New York Times has a front page editorial that calls for the outlawing of private ownership of weapons that can cause mass casualties. This is the epitome of the toothless rhetoric that we always hear after every tragic shooting spree. Would this new law simply rely on voluntary surrender of such weapons? *snicker* Does anyone, even the wildest eyed wild eyed liberal out there think that is ever going to happen? So why waste time writing, debating, voting on, and signing such a ridiculous DOA bill?
Our tendency to "pass a new law" to fix every problem has got to stop. We're just wasting our time. Worthless, unenforceable paper is NOT the answer. We need to turn MENSA loose and task them with finding a real solution.
