    Uh oh! We’d better make stricter gun laws! That will fix this upswing in crime for sure! After all, it is usually law abiding citizens that arm people, the guns just corrupt them!

    There are foibles in this world. There are even physics foibles and we can’t avoid them but creating the poor increases creates the crime increases.
