Gun control advocates fail to understand that the gunpowder genie is out of the bottle. There is no way to stop people from owning and, if needs be, making guns. Gun control can limit the number of Americans who keep and bear arms, but it can never eliminate the practice. There are hundreds of millions of serviceable firearms in the U.S., and tens of millions of citizens who cherish their gun rights. The idea that Americans will surrender their guns is laughable. Well it should be laughable . . .
