Gun control is not about the guns...'s about the control.

In the wake of the shootings in Colorado and Wisconsin, Mario's kid has expressed a desire

to crack down on gun violence and form a “consensus” on new laws in next year’s legislative session.
“Gun violence has reached an undeniable point where it’s hard for anyone to refute the damage that’s being done, and I do believe it’s time to find out what else we can do,” Cuomo said.
To which the NYS Senate Republican conference, which of late have been falling all over themselves touting their close ties with the Governor, had this to say:
“We agree with the governor that more can be done to combat criminals who use illegal guns, which account for the overwhelming majority of gun crimes in New York..." we need to worry about Second Amendment rights in this state even more than we already do?  November 6th and the next legislative session should prove interesting.
The University of Colorado will not allow students to bring guns into the Boulder campus's dorms this fall, though residents who have concealed-carry permits will be allowed to keep weapons in a limited number of family housing units, school officials announced Thursday.
That's called ghettoization, folks.  It's what they do.
Here's a highly intelligent student response (note the major):
Jeremy Difilippo, a geography major at CU who shares an Athens North apartment with his brother, said he doesn't believe guns should be allowed in his building.
"I don't think this is a threatening environment," he said Thursday, outside of his apartment at 19th and Athens streets. "It doesn't seem like a place people need to bring guns."
Well, that sort of thinking turned out well in another college setting, didn't it?
And as someone once said who had reason to know:
Combine the criminal element in society (who couldn't care less about gun control laws because they're, you know, criminals) with the fact that the mentally ill you will always have with you and you get situations like the ones in Colorado and Wisconsin recently.  And Washington, DC.  Oh, you don't know about that one?  There's a reason for that.
And when guns are outlawed—or so restricted that it amounts to the same thing—then only the government will have guns. Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, doesn't it?  Ask any European Jew how that worked out for them.  No, wait...there aren't many European Jews any more, not compared with before WWII.  Hmmm.  I wonder why.
And what can you expect in a society that has so little respect for life, starting here
Maybe if we did a better job as a culture of instilling an appreciation for the the sanctity of life, for how precious, miraculous, and fleeting life is from the start all the way to the nursing home, we'd have fewer situations like the ones that seem to be prompting Governor Cuomo to think that gun control is the answer.
And if they could speak, the 56 million people murdered by their own governments in the 20th century might point out that gun control is a prerequisite of genocide.
Oh, wait...we already have genocide...
