So, we have some disturbing news for everyone who believes in the almighty power of big-daddy government — there are some people that really couldn’t care less what the law says.
Most of these people are relatively benign. There are drivers who roll through stop signs without coming to a complete stop (you know who you are). There are people who partake in certain substances at rock concerts (substances that are still mostly illegal). There are even people who cross the street in areas that you’re not supposed to.
Believe it or not, some people just can’t be bothered.
Unfortunately, there is a faction of this group that is truly dangerous — and seeing a “gun free zone” sign will do absolutely nothing to stop their plans to commit further crimes.
This isn’t to say that there isn’t a place for law and order in our society. There is. But we can’t kid ourselves into believing that it is the end-all-be-all of correcting human behavior. These are cultural problems that require cultural solutions. Government simply can’t replace that.
