Panel to "Stop Gun Violence"
As if that's all it would take. They discuss many things, and what they usually come up with is the same tired, old, fatally flawed measures, that depend on LAWBREAKERS to OBEY LAWS, which predictably fail. But hey, they TRIED, didn't they? So they congratulate themselves for trying, even if their findings do NOTHING to strop gun violence. They speak of “stopping those with an elevated potential for violence from being able to purchase or possess firearms.” As if a LAW will do that. Anybody can go out and find another criminal from whom to buy their ILLEGAL guns. They speak of “keeping guns out of the wrong hands” as if their laws have done so in the past, and would in the future. (Philadelphia Tribune)
