Not in the Brady bunch

Well, good for us:

States took unprecedented action this year to tighten gun laws after last year’s mass shooting at a Connecticut school, two gun control groups said Monday.

Indiana, however, was among the states that moved in the opposite direction, according to a report released by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

Still, Laura Cutilletta, senior staff attorney with the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, said the moves by Indiana and other states that weakened regulations were not as significant as the steps taken by states that toughened rules.

“They’re not good. They’re dangerous laws,” Cutilletta said of the actions by Indiana and other states. “But they don’t revise the gun laws in a major way.”

Until somebody can successfully show that new gun laws actually prevent incidents such as the Connecticut school shooting and unless they can explain why it's a good idea to do everything possible to disarm potential victims, guess I'll keep blindly following the Second Amendment.
