A failure of gun control

The attempt to emotionally bludgeon Americans into supporting gun
control on the purported bodies of little kids has not only failed, but backfired entirely:

Police said the
Connecticut town — where 26 students and six staffers were killed at
Sandy Hook Elementary School during gunman Adam Lanza’s massacre — has
already had 211 permit requests this year, a number far above the 171
requested in 2012 and the 99 in 2011.

There has been a
run on guns in the Connecticut town where a madman armed with a
Bushmaster assault rifle turned a grade school into a slaughterhouse.

for gun permits are on track to double this year over last year in
heartbroken Newtown, where 20 first-graders and six staffers were
massacred at Sandy Hook Elementary School last Dec. 14, police said.

How deliciously ironic indeed. It
should be eminently clear that absolutely nothing is going to convince
Americans to disarm, not at a time where violent feral vibrants roam city streets in packs, Hispanic gangs are ethnically cleansing
entire cities one neighborhood at a time, the police are militarized, and agents from the
Department of Education and the Internal Revenue Service are armed
better than the average third-world army.

Granted, the average American has given his government a plethora of reasons to believe he is stupid, but Americans are not completely devoid of an instinct for self-preservation.
