Gun-control advocates think the only way to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them is to make it harder for everybody to get them.

They should listen to some of the things National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre, their biggest nemesis, has been saying.

These aren't the usual NRA cliches about how U.S. President Barack Obama's anti-gun bureaucrats are using mass shootings as an excuse to seize everybody's guns.
