Rabbi Lapin: Immediate calls for gun control in the aftermath of Las Vegas are dishonest and stupid

LAS VEGAS, NV - OCTOBER 2: Mourners attend a candlelight vigil at the corner of Sahara Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard for the victims of Sunday night's mass shooting, October 2, 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Late Sunday night, a lone gunman killed more than 50 people and injured more than 500 people after he opened fire on a large crowd at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, a three-day country music festival. The massacre is one of the deadliest mass shooting events in U.S. history. (Photo by Drew Angerer/Getty Images)

Learning to evaluate your life’s circumstances requires using both your head and your heart— separately, and this applies to the Las Vegas massacre.

"We are human beings," said Rabbi Lapin. "We empathize with those who lost loved ones."

We know that those exploiting Las Vegas to advance a “gun-control” agenda are cynical, manipulative, dishonest (and also probably foolish) when you look at suicide rates and traffic fatality figures.

Do fewer homes own a toolbox these days? Are Americans less resourceful and self-reliant?  Is that why Ikea made a surprising purchase? Teachers feel that they are paid less than they feel they are worth.

Really? Rabbi Daniel Lapin explains how a free market works. Listen to the full podcast above to hear Rabbi Lapin answer these challenging questions.
