For John, BLUF: What appears logical often ignores second and third order consequences. Nothing to see here; just move along.

Here is the lede plus two:
Gun control advocates routinely argue that gun control laws will reduce crime, that they take guns out of the hands of criminals. Gun rights advocates typically counter with plenty of examples of places with sky-high crime and lots of gun laws. This tends to not go over well with people who get their knowledge of firearms policy from MSNBC.I am sure Novelist Sarah Hoyt was wearing her shocked face as she posted this item.
It doesn’t go over well because it’s true and they’re not prepared for that.
Kind of like how they won’t be prepared to see how gun confiscation hasn’t really helped the District of Columbia.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
