McMaken: Gun Control: Fashionable Prohibition for Modern Lawmakers

  • Gun Control: Fashionable Prohibition for Modern Lawmakers

Ryan McMaken writes:

With the latest school shooting, all humane people are expected to jump up and do something to stop the next shooting. The most popular response among media pundits and national policymakers right now is an expansion of the various prohibitions now in place against guns.

For anyone familiar with the history of prohibitions on inanimate objects, however, these appeals to prohibition as a “common sense” solution are rather less convincing.
