Chris Cox notes how Gun-phobics target tragedy – “Second Amendment opponents ignore the reason bullets fly.”

And it’s not just politicians who use this craven strategy. Anti-gun groups, such as Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety, use it to advance their anti-gun agenda and even raise money. Immediately following a tragedy, they push emotional appeals to promote their cause and declare, “enough is enough.” Unfortunately, they offer no real solutions to the problems of violence in our communities — just the same rhetoric, devoid of common sense, logic or even the smallest connection to reality. In the case of expanded background checks, why would we expand something that is not working in the first place?

Irrationality driving an attempt to limit the rights to self defense. At the same time, another column castigates an elected official for denying rights to gays by refusing to sign marriage licenses.
