The Cato Institute issued what will likely become a landmark report Monday, titled: “The Costs and Consequences of Gun Control.”
I have never seen a more comprehensive examination of “common sense gun control” proposals and how they don’t make any real sense.
The report examines nearly every current issue: magazine limits, “assault weapon” bans, universal background checks, gun-free zones and much more.
The author, David B. Kopel, also highlights what would work instead — “to greatly increase spending to help the severely mentally ill.”
Kopel’s report should be required reading for every gun owner.
It’s a credit to Cato and the fine work they consistently produce.
We will be talking about this report for years.
