No Bill, No Break
Gabby Giffords

I have a lot of respect for congresswoman Giffords, but I don’t for the proposed legislation. It doesn’t make sense to pass some quick measure that fixes nothing, but appeases the fearful.

There is no way to ascertain future crimes, except for in an Phillip K. Dick sci-fi novel. These secret lists are dangerous unto themselves and will not stop these mass shootings. We need legislation that will be effective not hysterical.

I am not sure what the answers are, but I can see this isn’t going to accomplish anything but arbitrary discrimination against people thought to be potential shooters by some metric devised by the same people who regularly use military force in other countries to kill unarmed civilians.

Maybe the U.S. Military should be the first ones on that list.

Like what you read? Give John Gifford a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
