Gun control obviously not the solution to stop evil E-mail

Another school shooting.

In a gun-free zone.

How many more of these do we need to figure out gun control does not work and start addressing the real problem?

You see, a gun is an inanimate object. No life of it’s own. No preference for good or evil. Only a tool.

Like any tool, the potential it has for good or evil is solely determined by the person holding it.

Does a gun amplify the potential and power for a person with evil intentions? Of course, it does. But it also amplifies the potential and power of a good person whose intention is to stop evil.

To repeat – it’s not the tool, it’s the person using it.

History has proven since guns have been around that gun control only harms good people.

I guess it’s true – if we refuse to learn from history we are doomed to repeat it. Innocent victims and all.
