Restrictions Don’t Always Lead To Results

To The Reader’s Forum:

Society had an opioid problem. Earnest people said wise things and called for restrictions. Government instituted restrictions. The restrictions created huge amounts of inconvenience and pain for millions of law abiding patients but there are more, not fewer, illegal drug users and dealers now and the restrictions seem to have done little good. But they still must be considered a success because they have made the careers of the earnest people more numerous and more secure and garnered a lot of attention and good will for these people who are now better positioned to more effectively exercise their wisdom everywhere.

Society has a gun violence problem. Earnest people are saying wise things and calling for restrictions. … Wait a minute …
