The way our government seems to think about gun control, you would suppose that no one has ever killed anybody with a knife, a ball bat, car, train, club, drowning or perhaps an overdose of drugs.
Years ago, we had a way of stopping murderers for good. The hot seat. It was a sure bet that the criminal did not do it again. Now we reward them by giving them a life of ease in prison.
It costs the citizens $65 a day to furnish them with a life of ease, four square meals, television, library, health care, etc. Just one year costs the taxpayers $23,725. Is it any wonder why we are going broke?
I remember hearing many years ago some well known person saying, "A mind is a terrible thing to waste." I wish our government would have thought about that before they started putting fluoride in our water supply.
