Thursday night’s shooting in a Lafayette movie theater shattered, once again, the peace we enjoy in our country. It also tests our willingness to repel further attacks on our common prosperity.
The answer is to swim upstream: Arm everyone.
“That’s outrageous!” I hear the critics shout.
But consider that most Americans are law-abiding, peace-loving, stand-up people. Wouldn’t it be better if they were also the ones carrying arms? Any cynics who disagree must believe government employees somehow have the market cornered on “goddness.”
That’s quite suspicious, because the effort to get the guns out of the hands of criminals has failed – and failed miserably. It simply cannot be done. It is a bell that cannot be un-rung. Like when Iran gets the nuke, there’s no going back. And though a number of law-abiding Americans do own guns, we are discouraged from walking around with them. This is clearly a losing strategy, and it must change.
