Heartless? Maybe it is, but at this point I really don’t care. I hate that Erica Lafferty’s mother was killed, but putting more restrictions on the people that didn’t do it isn’t going to bring her mother back. I understand that she had a terrible tragedy visited upon her, but let’s be brutally honest. She is letting her emotions get the best of her, and that is never a good way — let alone the best way — to decide upon legislation that affects the natural rights of Americans. Of course, the entire gun control argument is driven by emotion, but it’s always ratcheted up to insane levels by tragedies such as this. But just because they scream louder doesn’t give their arguments any more merit. In fact, you might even say it gives them less. Good for Ted Cruz for refusing to bend to the will of a bully.
