After weeks of uncivil wrangling, the Democrat-controlled state legislature passed a flurry of gun-control bills. The purported justification for violating our Second Amendment rights is public safety. Despite extensive data, the bills’ supporters aver that draconian gun-control measures are required to reduce violence. Before the newly-passed bills have even been signed, though, those legislators introduced a bill to repeal the death penalty. But isn’t the death penalty supposed to deter violence?
Is this a case of rampant illogic, callous deceit or blatant hypocrisy? Do the Democrat legislators think that we voters are mere unthinking silly-putty? I hope that they’re wrong.
