Did you know that if you bring a firearm into a “gun free zone”, the weapon will magically vanish into thin air?
If you pull out a firearm and shoot someone in the streets of New York City, the bullets will just fade into nothingness — because NYC has gun control.
Obviously, this isn’t how gun control works — or how reality works. Gun control laws are just that — laws, and laws are often broken. If we’re using this logic, drug users shouldn’t exist, and every car on the highway would be limited to traveling at 65 miles per hour (in most states).
Just to be clear, we’re not advocating for any of our readers to go on some sort of law-breaking spree. Please don’t do that.
The point here, made exceptionally well by Neo from The Matrix, is that laws are only as good as the people who follow them. Criminals, by definition, break laws. This doesn’t mean there isn’t a place for them, but it does remind us that there are truly evil people in the world, and throwing up signs to stop them isn’t always enough.
