Gun Laws and Drug Laws Aren't Working

"....The recent Colorado shooting has sparked a national debate on the effectiveness of gun control. My Facebook news feed is littered with comments from my conservative friends claiming we need more concealed carry and from my liberal friends demanding more gun control. Who is right?

To my liberal friends: why do you think drug control is failing but gun control works? To my conservative friends: why do you think drug control works but gun control is failing? Do more restrictions equal less accessibility?....."

Neither work... so the Libertarian party is the only one that's got it right.

Both policies are failures. The catch in repealing them is that people understand and like the idea of gettin' high on weed regardless of political alignment or social spectrum, but gun ownership still has a negative connotation in some places.
