Where There's A Will, There's A Way

This may look like just a silly cartoon, but to me it says a lot. There have been many recent, tragic events involving guns, and much talk of gun control. Here where I live, they even had a gun buy-back, trading food and gas cards for any gun turned in, no questions asked. I don't remember the exact number of guns collected, but it was a large number. Maybe, the idea behind it was a good one, which was to get guns off the street, but I think it was a futile one.

Passing laws to prevent responsible citizens from owning weapons is not the answer to what is happening in this country. Posting gun free notices in public places will not help, either. Those wishing to cause harm, and violate the laws of the land, will find a way to do it, one way or another.
