There was an incident in a local high school a week or so ago. A gun went off in the boys room. Why? Well there was a bit of buying and selling going on and someone forgot the 1st rule. So after the gun show loophole is closed, the anti-gun forces will concentrate on the Illegal Boys Washroom Room Loophole next?
The school went on lockdown, arrests were made. Illegal, gun-dealing high school maggots were hauled off the hoosegow, along with a 20 year old that didn't attend that institution of gov't learning and indoctrination.
The funny thing is, it didn't spark calls for more gun control in order to make the illegal acts 'more illegaller.' You see, private sales of handguns among people that are ALL under the age of 21 is already a no-no. Other laws were also broken. Stolen firearms, attempted sale of stolen items, guns in 'Gun Free Zone'. SO. No fresh laws needed. And in this case, fresh laws weren't even attempted/contemplated.
Perhaps this was too small fry for the Brady type people to make a stink. They figured they should keep their powder dry and pull the trigger on fresh legislation when the after-action details are more lurid and sensational. A bigger flash in the pan can get the Gun Control types to come out loaded for bear, perhaps. Say, if a student was injured by the negligent terlet area discharge. A tragedy draws in more national media attention and they'd get bigger bang for their buck. Then there would be shouts of "Do it for the CHILDREN!" and new legislation to ban .50 caliber ammo, or somesuch unrelated nonsense.
