I suppose the idea is this, I've been hearing it long enough I should get it by now. Bad guys are not going to obey the no-guns-in-bars law. Good guys will. The result, only bad guys have guns in bars. We should allow guns in bars, so some good guys will also have guns in there to balance things out.
Is that about it?
It reminds me of what Captain James T. Kirk said:
That came out of the memory banks from thirty years ago, or more, but you get the idea. Does it make sense that we strive to balance the power in this way, when by doing so we continually feed the gun flow to those very criminals we're worried about? Is our best approach to try to out-gun the bad guys in all places at all times?Balance of Power, the trickiest, most dangerous game, but the only one that preserves both sides.
Wouldn't it be better to eliminate guns from places where they don't belong?
