Hoplophobe Extraordinaire

"People behave better in our society when they know somebody is watching," he said.

That there quote is from Bill Jenkins. "Not your classic gun control lobbyist". No ... he's also a professional victim. Really. Mr. Jenkins lost his teenage son to a homicidal thug. As a father, I can only imagine the pain of that loss.

Bill Jenkins
However, the fact is Mr. Jenkins has focused on the least important component in that equation.
He feels all warm 'n fuzzy with Mayor Emmanual's proposal regarding registration of privately owned handguns.

So again;
"People behave better in our society when they know somebody is watching," he said.
Ummm, Bill? No.

Some people will behave differently under observation. Some, however, just don't seem to give a rodents sphincter. As proof, I present every "Stop 'n Rob" security cam vid on YouTube. Or, take every bank robbery security cam photo that the police release. See? The moment that the balloon goes up, the moment that a criminal decides to act, the written word holds no sway. They know they're doing wrong. They know they're being recorded. They may be caught. They may be punished. They don't care.

Get it Bill? When it really counts, the law is useless. If the criminal gets caught, then maybe.
