The fantasy of many
people and the media
that meaningful gun regulation would pass after the
is running up against reality. Newtown
As debate begins, Senate background check proposal for gun sales lacks necessary votes
By Ed O’Keefe and Tom Hamburger,
This is to be expected. Men and women who think that the right to own an automatic weapon is greater than the right to be safe and secure in one’s own home will never be defeated by logic, honesty, or respect for life.
But their argument that gun ownership will make everyone safer was cruelly destroyed by the events at the Boston Marathon. No amount of automatic weapons would have prevented that tragedy, no amount of unlimited gun rights would have stopped the bombs.
