When I saw the news about a shooting at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, my heart sank. I’m a Navy man. This is the time of year when we start the two-week banter with our Army brothers leading up to the Army-Navy football game. It was just a couple of days before one of the most poignant anniversaries for the Navy, the attack on Pearl Harbor. And this was at Pearl Harbor!
It was gutwrenching.
As I wrote about it on Thursday, though, some things became quite clear to me. In particular, how gun control is a complete and total failure and this shooting exemplifies all the ways various gun control laws fell apart.
