There are those who believe that gun control can stop “dangerous people” from getting guns. Now I’m not saying Twist the Balloon Man is a dangerous person, although there is such a thing as globophobia. Nor am I inviting the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (and Really Big Fires) to classify a balloon gun as a prohibited AOW (Any Other Weapon). But anyone who believes that gun control will stop dangerous people from possessing guns fails to understand just how easy it is to make one. In short, you can’t stop the signal. But you can, on occasion, stop a dangerous person. With a gun.
