They never get it, do they?

Kimberly Hill tragically lost her young son in a gang shooting. Daesean was only 8 years old at the time, so it's not as if he were the target... he was in the wrong place at the wrong time and got caught in the crossfire.

The death is tragic, there is no argument there.

Why is it whenever we start discussing death (be it that of a soldier in Iraq or a child in Brooklyn), there is this overwhelming instinct to apologize for disagreement before even embarking on a discussion?

If I disagree with a grieving widow, mother or orphan that doesn't mean I care less for their departed loved one. I don't denigrate their memory by expressing disagreement with a survivor. Just because I think Cindy Shitcan is full of it and a loony hippy reliving her drug induced Woodstock glory days, that DOESN'T mean I care or respect less her son's ultimate sacrifice!

Anyway back to Brooklyn. Kimberly Hill is now protesting the number of guns in New York and saying that if there were tougher gun laws on the books, her son would be alive today.

Okay, let's see ..... in New York:
Dealing drugs is illegal... VERY illegal... did that stop her son's killers from dealing drugs? Ummm... no.
Carrying fully automatic weapons is illegal.... VERY illegal.... did that stop her son's killers from possessing fully automatic weapons? Not one iota.
Shooting an innocent individual is illegal... VERY illegal... did that stop her son's killers from shooting her son?

So, in Kimberly Hill's mind, these thugs who had absolutely no regard for the laws already on the books, would have refrained from killing her son if there were only one more law on the books!

This is SUCH a liberal state of mind! Pass a law and all will be well! Of course when their own demagogues disregard laws of perjury, obstruction of justice, and sexual harassment.... welll THEN the laws are only guidelines.... but pass a law, and there will be no more shooting deaths!

Liberals and hippies live in a world of delusions and hallucinations, which is fine, until they try to dictate the real world based upon their illusions!
