Ever since I learned as a teenager that the Saturday Evening Post magazine was actually published on Wednesday mornings, I have been very skeptical about words. “Gun control” laws do not control guns, “rent control” laws do not control rent, and government “stimulus” spending does not stimulate the economy…
Does anyone seriously believe that people who are prepared to defy the laws against murder are going to obey laws against owning guns or large-capacity magazines?
