Gun Control Doesn’t Work

RugerBearcatRevolverGunIn the wake of the Navy Yard shooting, the left is again pushing gun control, despite the fact that the District of Columbia has among the nation’s most stringent gun control laws.

Yeah, I know… they’re arguing that gun control has to be national, because criminals don’t observe state boundaries.

But criminals don’t observe international boundaries, either. Remember Fast and Furious? Plus, if tens of millions of people can wander over our border undetected, so can criminals importing illegal guns.

Remember what the left has told us many times, in another context: Mexican guns want jobs that American guns don’t want.
