Sad but true...

As Arizona has shown, the usual response to a shooting such as this one is for people to rush out and buy themselves guns. The more innocent people are killed by guns, the more determined Americans are to possess them. Legislators do not dare challenge this insanity and, indeed, have shown a tendency to allow further loosening of the gun laws. Arizona, for example, has recently passed laws permitting guns to be carried in bars, and to allow the carrying of concealed weapons without a permit.
Guns in bars? The undying Old West.
