When states were coming up with the idea of implementing "Three Strikes" laws, we heard the left claiming that this was not going to be effective in reducing crime because everytime we locked up a career criminal, there'd be another one to replace him on the streets.
Now we hear that increases in firearm ownership by law abiding citizens has nothing to do with decreases in violent crime, but rather it is because of othe variables such as tougher sentencing laws and "three strikes" laws implemented by the states. They want to have their cake and eat it too. They are predictable in their illogical approach to the use of common sense.
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." Samuel Adams.
