Shane Vander Hart discussed the current gun control debate with frequent Caffeinated Thoughts contributor and gun rights advocate Pat Nicklaus.
Pat Nicklaus: Whenever someone does something evil with a gun, you can count on hearing two phrases: “We need a national conversation on guns” and “we need to do something about guns.”
Pat Nicklaus: There are 20,000 local, state and federal gun laws on the books. Even if we have 20,000 more, none of them will legislate the evil or crazy out of a person.
Gun control advocates may sleep better having done something that can’t ever be proven to limit gun crimes, but we can’t quantify the cost to our liberty.
