More Legislation is Not the Answer‏

Everytime we react to a tragic event like mass shootings with calls for more legislation that limit the rights of all we are in the wrong. We need to focus on novel and technology-based solutions for a greater society. Think automated cars to eliminate drunk driving, societal support systems to treat the mentally ill, cameras to monitor police actions, and novel approaches to criminal rehabilitation.

If we legislate every time a small population is negatively affected, further limiting the rights of all – take that to its logical conclusion.
