An excellent reader comment in the Florida Time-Union responds to those who blame guns or a particular ethic group for inner city violence. The article points out that blaming guns is intellectually lazy, and that blaming one ethnic group for gun-related crime is also misguided and has no basis in fact. A small snippet of the article:
Blaming the availability of guns is intellectually lazy, and boilerplate DNC/HCI tripe. Anyone with half a brain knows and acknowledges that criminals will never, ever turn in their weapons, and banning guns will only create a gigantic black market for guns — exactly the result we have seen with keeping drugs illegal.
My thanks to Anders for pointing out this article.
