Let’s keep doing what doesn’t work

Gun control doesn’t work, but let’s keep doing it anyway because, well, we’ve got nothing else.  From today’s Daily News op-ed, “Get the guns: Wanton slaying of 13-year-old cries out for crackdown on firearms“:

“… Mayor Bloomberg has filed lawsuits and staged sting operations to try to halt the flood of weapons that flow up I-95 and into New York. He has mobilized mayors around the country. And still a revolver found its way to a teenager who didn’t have the sense not to use it …”

So they’re basically admitting their gun control schemes don’t work as advertised.  A rational person would recognize failure, stop and try something else.  Not the DN:

“…  the NYPD must keep going after guns. Must keep up the stop-and-frisks that so outrage civil libertarians. Must confront suspicious-looking passersby. Because that’s the best way to try to save lives …”

Translation: Fuck the Constitution.  What we need is a fascist police state.  We’re going to save your life even if it kills you.

    Must! Must! Must!
    Is that the best way to save lives? Sounds more like OCD than sound policy.
