Laws Don't Prevent Crime and Terrorism

Terrorists and criminals don’t care about laws against guns or anything else. Laws don’t stop or prevent terrorism or crime; they just define it. Armed force stops crime and terrorism.

The weapons used in the Paris attacks were illegal. It didn’t matter that they were illegal in France. That didn’t stop the attacks. Murder has been illegal since the beginning of time, yet that did not stop the terrorists in Paris or San Bernadino.

It would be better if everyone was armed so people could fight back. You might say that is bringing back the Old West. Well, the terrorists are the ones bringing the Old West back to us. The question is how are we going to respond. Are we going to allow ourselves to be sitting ducks in “Gun Free Zones” in this atmosphere or are we going to allow law abiding citizens to protect themselves and their fellow citizens?
