This week, I get to go to “Active Shooter Training,” as required by the university. I thought this was grim and cynical, but then maybe I’m grim and cynical: I think gun laws, like drug laws, like our ill-conceived attempt at alcohol Prohibition, will just make the underground market more powerful. If people want something, someone will supply it, legally or not. Demand and desire make common ground for anything prohibited. So, with despair and resignation, I guess “Active Shooter Training” will always be a good idea.
