The usual knee-jerk reactions of Republicans and Democrats are now being aired after the tragedy in Orlando. Democrats are angling to attack the 2nd Amendment, and Republicans are angling for a further escalation of war. All this despite yet another example of a "gun-free zone" mass-shooting, and an America that deals with blowback as a result of its military interventions in the Middle East. Both ideas have already contributed to the creation of this mess. But if there's one thing that government is expert at, it's in continuing policies that fail.
While the two parties continue to argue over how government will make the situation worse, the great Judge Napolitano asks the non-superficial questions about the Orlando shooter.
1.) Why didn't the FBI place Mateen under surveillance after interviewing him twice for suspicious terror links?
2.) Why was Mateen able to continue working as a security guard with the security firm G4S after making statements about his wanting to kill people?
Watch the Judge below:
As Ron Paul has stated on many occasions: "I'm convinced that you never have to give up liberties to be safe. I think you're less safe when you give up your liberties."
You can be sure that both left and right are going to attack liberties somehow as a result of this tragedy.
Such schemes can never be the solution to our problems.
