Gun control is pushed as a strategy to keep Americans safe in their homes, schools and workplaces. It is presented as the key component in safer streets, neighborhoods and families. But what happens when gun control fails, as it regularly does? What then?
Let us consider a few examples of gun control failing:
Fort Hood on Nov. 5, 2009 — That attacker shot and killed 13 innocents with a handgun he acquired after passing a background check. Moreover, he carried out his attack in a gun-free zone.
The Aurora movie theater on July 20, 2012 — The attacker acquired his gun after passing a background check, registered his gun with the state (as required) and only used 10-round magazines in his attack.
