If any of my guesses (about our American unwillingness to do anything more vigorously legislative concerning gun control) are true, then I remain disturbed. On two levels…
One, that there is little promise of statutory remedy to the ready access to the flood of firearms; particularly assault weaponry.
Two, that, even if our national legislative body was to act with purpose in regard to gun control, laws do not and cannot govern the passions of the human psyche and resultant beliefs and behaviors, whether individual or communal. In a word, no matter the law, there will be those who seek to violate it.
Nevertheless, on both counts, I continue to pray: Let there be law.
