Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for October 09, 2015
A Thought Experiment What if current law made it legal for private citizens to own not only any type of firearm, but ballistic missiles? What would happen after each tragic case of a nut firing his hime missile at a school? The NRA would make the exact arguments against legal controls on missiles. The second Amendment says citizens can bear arms! Missles are literally arms, so owning them is a Constitutional right. Our founding Fathers meant it as a safe guard against tyrannical government. Pundits would make the exact same points about the cause of the tragedy. This is the price we pay to live in a free country Missles didn't cause this, an insane person did! this is about mental health! And politician would make the exact same excuses for non-action. If we outlaw missiles only outlaws will have missiles. Stuff happens.
