The killings in Las Vegas were a national tragedy and will drive a renewed call for gun control. The fact is guns do not kill people, people use guns to kill people. The crime of murder is already a violation of the law and is punishable by death. If that fact is not enough to stop someone from obtaining a gun and using it to kill others, I cannot think of any other law that would stop a person intent on doing harm to others from doing so.
Is it the fault of the spoon that some people are fat? Is it the fault of the pen that some people misspell words?
Why do we not realize bad people, intent upon killing others, will use knives, guns, baseball bats, bombs, automobiles or anything else that will serve their needs to do so?
Face it, a new law will not stop those intent upon killing others. The crime of murder is already punishable by death or life in prison.
