Merry Martin Luther King Day, y'all. I think it's fitting that today was the day that New York State chose to enact the toughest gun law in the country. According to The Huffington Post, "Owners of an estimated 1 million previously legal semiautomatic rifles, such as the Bushmaster model used to kill 20 children and six adults in Newtown, Conn., a month ago, will be allowed to keep their weapons but will have a year to register them with police. The sale of any more such weapons is prohibited."
The United States incarcerates far too many of it's citizens, the majority of them minorities, but I still think it makes more sense, if you have to incarcerate people, to lock up those with illegal guns rather than those with illegal cigarettes.
