The idiocy of gun control summarized in a single graphic

I reference "heads in sand" quite often regarding information security but no subject better summarizes this concept than people's willingness to let the government tell them when and where they can defend themselves and their families from criminal thugs. This graphic (source unknown) says it all:

Ask anyone who's against self-defense, personal responsibility, and free will if they'd consider putting a sign in their yard or on their door that says "This is a gun-free home" and watch their response. Complete and utter idiocy.

The politicians are going to get what they want...eventually. And one day, Americans will wake up and say "What happened!?".

Heads in sand indeed.

Default to F.U.D. and everything'll be okay

If you can't convince them, confuse them.

That's what Harry Truman once said and it reminds me of many IT and information security professionals. They struggle to communicate effectively so they just take the lawyer route and attempt to make things even more confusing...and we wonder why many people outside of IT don't take us very seriously.
