Five-Year-Old Shoots Four-Year-Old and It’s Your Fault

As I said before, gun control advocate MikeB302000 [not shown] seems to be jumping into the deep end of the pool labeled “guilt by association.” Blogging a washingtonpost.com story about a child-on-child firearm-related tragedy, Mike points the finger at you. “These incidents are so rare the pro-gun crowd says we should stop worrying about them and above all we should stop blaming them. But that’s where we differ. I do blame them. I blame all who advocate and campaign and vote for lax gun laws and who oppose simple improvements in the gun control system that would have an immediate beneficial effect on the gun violence.” Memo to Mike: define “simple,” quantify “beneficial effects” and offer some data on the potential immediacy of said unnamed effects. Please.
