Thought for Today

The media is hyping that the couple who killed all those people in San Bernardino yesterday had legally acquired two of the weapons.

Which two weapons were legally obtained? Now being reported that the handguns were legally purchased which reports indicate were not used in the murders.

Had this couple not been able to obtain two of those four firearms, would that have prevented the murders?  Once again, the handguns were not used, the ‘assault rifles’ were.

Tougher gun laws would not have prevented these two from the demented rampage they went on as they had those two weapons that were not legally obtained.

Think about this:  Even if all firearms were outlawed in America, do you really think that cartels out of Mexico would not get into the arms business and smuggle them North kind of like Operation Fast and Furious smuggled them South.  I know it is cliché, but it is true, if you outlaw guns in America, only outlaws will have guns.
