TX Governor Greg Abbott tells NRA in taped message that there’s no point in having any new gun laws. “Thousands of laws on the books … have not stopped madmen from carrying out evil acts.” Let’s test this with an analogy: “Laws against guns drunk driving don’t work. The only thing that stops a active shooter drunk driver is more good people with guns willing to drive drunk.”

Gun ownership and deaths is the one place where America is truly exceptional. We have more guns than people (?!?!?!?) and 5-10 times as many gun deaths as other “civilized” countries.

UPDATE: I read this today, written by a westerner in Cowboy State Daily (!), and I love the idea. Regulate Our Militia, And Regulate Them Well.

That’s the right answer!
