Get Angry at Guns ... yeah, yeah ... that is the ticket!

About: obama demands gun curbs in navy yard shooting speech | the daily caller

Funny thingy, DC has some of the strictest gun laws in the country; the Washington Navy Yard is military base in DC. Both are the place where the White House is located & have the jurisdictional influence of POTUS. 
... & yet Obama blames gun laws or guns for the recent mass killings in the Navy Yard .... ?????? I say he is just covering for being embarassed that yet another thing happened under his watch that he should have prevented.
What new laws would have prevented a nutcase from doing what nutcases do? Why not enforce those already on the books? (not a POTUS strength, eh?)

Watching the "stalking video" of the Washington Navy Yard killer, I wonder if he is not just an advanced scout testing out insurgent methods of attacking our military bases & facilities.

The real issue here is that prior restraint is not compatible with individual liberty.  Once we start criminalizing objects and activities because they might result in death or injury, there is no principle of logic that limits what restrictions might be applied based on that reasoning. Any and all objects and activities "might" result in injury or death. And gay sex is no exception to that.

Comparing gun deaths with HIV deaths is interesting - Lovejoy's conclusion is above.  The original article is here for which Lovejoy did a refutation.
It is interesting that those who are for gun restriction are mostly the same people who are against quarantine of a disease which is eventually or usually fatal which disease can spread by sex! (usually a conscious & intentional act).

horseshit thinking all around.  

look at specific consequences of allowing specific objects and behaviors in our culture and decide.  guns catalyze violence just as surely as platinum catalyzes the production of SO3 from SO2.  Eliminate the platinum and you just don't get as much SO3, eliminate the guns and you don't get as much violence.  Now do people loose some "individual liberty".  You bet your sweet tootsie.  Is that bad, not necessarily ...  it's called civilization.  

Thinking with generalized ruts like "individual liberty trumps all" will lead you into riding your rut right into the ground.  i guess that's fun to do as an individual, not so very fun as a civilization.
YEP, FREEDOM IS THE ANTI-NEOLIB!
