Mayor Fenty Is Clueless
by

The news reported the other day that the D.C. government will appeal the ruling in Parker v. the District of Columbia. Here is Adrian Fenty’s “logic” for the appeal:

“We have made the determination that this law can and should be defended and we are willing to take our case to the highest court in the land to protect the city’s residents,” Fenty said in a press release. “Our handgun law has saved countless lives — keeping guns out of the hands of those who would hurt others or themselves.”

I wonder if Fenty said that with a straight face. If the hand gun ban has saved “countless” lives, why does D.C. has one of the highest murder rates in the nation (and often the highest)?

If you follow Fenty’s logic to its conclusion, then D.C. residents are, on average, quite a bit more violent than elsewhere in the nation, and would have acted on their violent urges if they had access to guns.

The logic behind gun control has been obviously faulty for quite some time.
