In the wake of the atrocity last week at Sandy Hook elementary school, we are, once again, beng lectured by statist utopians that the problem is guns, that America is steeped in a culture of violence, that free citizens need to hand over more control to government agencies.
The truths are simple and stark:
1. Evil is real. Cain killed Abel, and murder has been with us ever since. Only the tools change: from sticks and stones to spears and swords, bows and arrows, cannons, guns, machine guns, and now annihilating atomic weapons.
