RON HART: Dems ‘Never Let a Good Tragedy Go To Waste’

Published: Saturday, February 2, 2013 at 04:25 PM.

Only 323 deaths last year were caused by assault weapons. 496 Americans were killed with hammers and 650 with knives. 12,000 people died because of drunk drivers. Millions of Americans are dying from obesity-related causes; perhaps a one-week waiting period to buy a Twinkie is next? Or shall we confiscate all forks?

We really need to move slowly and within the bounds of sensibility on this issue. There are some 300 million guns in America now. And, like the 12 million illegal aliens already here, they ain’t going away.
