Much easier to obfuscate and blame the means rather than the cause, pander to the legions of frenetic savants that simply refuse to see that gun control is the least effective measure for reducing violent crime. It both get’s them re-elected and allows them to stave off the messy issues that are the true catalyst for violence.
