Will gun control eliminate or even lessen the spate of mass shootings like the ones we’ve experienced in the past 36 months? In this week’s boralogue, John shows that gun regulations ultimately harm law abiding citizens, like those who may need to protect themselves from mass shooters, and will do nothing to stop criminals’ intent on wreaking havoc. If allowed to continue, political correctness – false narratives about gun control, refusing to correctly identify the problem, etc – will only succeed in getting us killed.

John’s quote of the week:
“Why didn’t we have large numbers of shooting like this 50 years ago? It’s that the morality of the country has changed and that’s why you’re seeing the increase in violence. Until you get that under control, you won’t get the violence under control – no matter how many laws you pass.”
