Exploiting The Boston Bombing

Gary L. Bauer

Believe it or not, Reuters and some liberal politicians are citing the Boston jihadists as justification for tougher gun control laws. Here's the reasonsing, and I use that term loosely: The two men were not licensed to own guns, did not go through background checks, thus we need more laws.

As the Reverend Al Sharpton said, "How can we have such upheaval, such bedlam, and people don't even want to check who we allow to have deadly weapons. Something don't make sense to me." 

The left-wing ideology doesn't make sense to me. Think about that for a second: The criminals were obviously ignoring laws on the books and the left's solution is to pass more laws that criminals will undoubtedly ignore, but that will create additional burdens for law-abiding Americans!
