They Never Learn

Politicians everywhere think private citizens owning and using guns for self-defense is a bad thing, This despite the REALITY that stopping law-abiding people from owning them is counter-productive. It does just the opposite of what it's meant to do. Every time it is tried results in MORE crime. But do they learn? Not a chance. They think they know more than what reality predicts. That's what they thought in El Salvador, where they pretty much BANNED guns in the hands of ANYBODY except cops, government officials, and people the politicians approved. And what happened? As predicted, crime skyrocketed, and more and more people died at the hands of people who ignored their laws—as law-abiding people do not. They just can't understand that hindering law-abiding people from having guns CREATES higher crime and murder rates. In that way, they're INCOMPETENT. But people (not me) keep on electing them, and suffering from it. (Daily Caller)
