Jonah Goldberg Finds the Right Question

Jonah Goldberg:

I guess my main problem with [Peter King’s (R-NY) proposal for a law restricting carrying guns near Congresspeople]  stems from a simple question: Would Peter King’s legislation have prevented this attack?

The answer seems fairly obviously, No.

There were lots of laws on the books barring wanton murder and yet Loughner violated those laws. Does anyone honestly believe that a federal law banning carrying a gun would have made a difference?
