Even more gun control in Ireland

Bill Sjostrom writes me: "Ireland’s Justice Minister has announced sweeping new restrictions on legal gun ownership. The last quotation from the minister in the press release makes it clear that it is about protecting the government from blame for crime, not protecting the public from crime."

Indeed the last paragraph makes this statement:

The Minister said "While I regret the need for these proposals, the reality is that if we were subject to a Dunblane type incident or stolen legal handguns were used to kill innocent civilians the present situation, which has not arisen as the result of any policy decision, would be impossible to justify."
