We interrupt your regularly-scheduled Sunday Night football game so that Obama can speechify
This will serve as an open thread.
But first, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the President will tell us it’s time to have a national conversation about guns and violence. Which is fine by me. My first contribution to that conversation is this: why is it that lawmakers looking for cheap grace have been allowed to pass laws that not only leave children unprotected in schools, but they proudly advertise the fact that that’s what they do?
We’re to entrust our children to school teachers — and yet those same teachers can’t be trusted, even with the proper training, to carry a concealed firearm. Meanwhile, we’re to trust that criminals, who by definition are willing to break the law, will somehow be cautioned away from unspeakable acts because legislators like to attach their names to feel-good — and yet demonstrably unworkable — gun bans.
There. There’s a start, liberal fascists. Now let’s hear your defense of what are essentially “sitting duck” laws.
