Ray McInerny, Sr., and his wife Jean, have lived in New Berlin for 32 years. A retired graphic artist, he now paints for his own enjoyment. This blog will attempt to present items of general interest to his New Berlin neighbors.
Whenever a tragedy occurs we can count on some politicians vowing to bring to the floor of a city, county, state or national legislature a "new" law to "protect" citizens from gun fire.
Representative Carolyn McCarthy of New York makes that vow Sunday, January 9th, after the news of Gabrielle Giffords attack and six others were killed and eighteen injured by a deranged soul in Arizona. I sympathize with Mrs. McCarthy’s efforts, but nevertheless object to this action. From an emotional point of view she had the awful specter of losing her husband and son by gun fire. This triggers her actions. It doesn’t produce good law.
