I got into a discussion on Facebook with my brother and his wife. Both are dyed in the wool liberals. Or is that dead in the head? In reference to the recent shooting in NYC they asked "how did the shooter get his gun?". I said that very likely it was illegally. My brother said that until we know how he got it, we don't know if it was illegally. I replied that it didn't matter how he got it, since he's a convicted felon it was illegal. And my sister in law said:
"That's why we need stronger gun laws"
I'm sorry, what???????
I was totally gob-smacked. Even today, every time I think about that statement I'm just stupified. Does she think that laws are physical things? That you can make a law so strong that it can't be broken?
I'm just dumbfounded.
