Yesterday was the 19 Anniversary of the Columbia School shooting. Shortly after the shooting, as Congress debated what type of gun control reform to impose on the people, then Congressman Ron Paul delivered a very important speech on the real causes of gun violence and the link between a free society and a just and moral society.
Sadly, Dr Paul’s speech is just as relevant today as it was 19 years ago. The knee-jerk reaction of most of the political class when confronted by a school or other type of shooting is to support new forms of gun control without asking how existing gun control laws help mass shooters by leaving the victims defenseless. They also never consider how other government policies contribute to the culture of violence.
