Maybe gun control is a good idea after all

Maybe gun control is a good idea after all

Yes, like many of you, I don’t really want to abandon the Second Amendment. But just think about it for a minute: first we had Fast and Furious, if nothing else a perfect case from which to argue that the Obama Administration should be kept as far as possible from anything to do with guns.

Now we have a second case, certified by none other than the New York Times, in which the involvement of the Obama Administration led to weapons ending up in the wrong hands. This time, rather than drug lords in Mexico, it was jihadists in Syria.

So maybe a new gun control law is in order after all. How about one to severely restrict any connection between government officials and arms shipments? I doubt if anyone will trumpet it during halftime at a football game, but it might save more lives than anything else being contemplated.
