Gun Violence: Lessons Learned from Car Crashes
#1
One of my former criminal justice professors from Temple University posted this on her linkedin.com account. I'm glad the article says to calm down and understand "the problem" before making any decisions. The article could certainly explain to people what the true meaning of the second amendment is before it discusses how complete firearm confiscation is illegal. With the exception of suggesting "assault weapon" bans and magazine capacity limits, it's an okay article. It's better than your MSM news, but it's not something I would put on the front page of the NRA's website.

We have laws that make drivers use their cars more safely – by wearing seat belts, putting children and infants in safety seats, and limiting cell phone use.

Unfettered access to roads being an inalienable right, Congress shall make no law infringing the people's right to own and drive a cart.

Yeah, I don't remember that one.
