Gun control leads to stupidity.

The institution of irrationality as law eventually leads to stupidity replacing common sense.

via the NRA-ILA:
London schoolchildren are eligible to receive 125,000 free tickets to Olympic events -- but they were initially disallowed from using the tickets for shooting events.

An unidentified source told the London Evening Standard, "We decided it would not be appropriate. It's the only sport children will not be able to go to as part of the Ticketshare scheme." And Danny Bryan, founder of Communities Against Gun and Knife Crime, said, "It is good kids should enjoy the Games but there's no way we should glorify guns."

Apparently, the fear is that children are going to see some guy poke a hole in a piece of paper with a target pistol and say to his/herself, "Gee, I oughta go out and shoot some people."

As crazy as that sounds, that has become acceptable logic in Sarah Brady Paradise. That is what happens when you allow the purely emotion and fear driven argument of "commonsense gun control" go unchecked.
