Governor Matt Bevin, the governor of Kentucky, completely nailed why more gun laws won’t stop horrible things like Las Vegas from happening; it’s not like a gunman bent on killing hundreds of people won’t somehow find a way to get a gun.
You can’t regulate evil.
To all those political opportunists who are seizing on the tragedy in Las Vegas to call for more gun regs…You can't regulate evil…

Evil men will do evil. What’s smarter is making sure innocent, law-abiding Americans have access to firearms to protect themselves from evil men. Of course Democrats in their infinite wisdom think we just need to make murder more illegal or something.
I await your proposal to rescind Kentucky's laws banning assault, murder and arson.
One of government's core functions is to regulate evil. https://t.co/5cTwYts2bq

Senator Chris Murphy seems to think they’re powerful enough to control evil people. And sorry but where is it written in the Constitution that one of government’s functions is to regulate evil?
They better outlaw abortion pretty damn quickly then.
Fallacious. Murphy is conflating actions with tools. I’m against abortion; doesn’t mean I want to prohibit vacuums. https://t.co/67eJvkqy2u

It’s always the weapon with these folks, not the person.
Also, "regulate evil"? What are acceptable levels of evil? Do we do cost-benefit analyses?

Regulate evil? Has he really considered the ramifications of what he just wrote?
Can I get a license to practice evil in KY?

Well, if Democrats can charge you a fee or tax on that license to practice evil, pretty sure they’d find a way to make that happen.
Regulating evil, b*tch please.
