Guns Prevent Thousands of Crimes Every Day, Research Show

• https://fee.org by Lawrence W. Reed

It never fails. A split-second after a mass shooting occurs, grandstanders and ideologues issue statements demanding new gun controls—even if the laws already on the books failed or the laws they want would have made no difference. Case in point: the tragic incidents in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, in early August 2019.

The message is clear: Guns cause violence. Tax them, take them, ban them, regulate them. Do something, maybe anything! Such knee-jerk, emotional responses are dangerous, writes Charles W. Cooke in National Review, "for when a nation sets up a direct pipeline between its emotions and its laws, it does not keep its liberty for long."
