Memory F. Mitchell: Silver job bullet

December 31, 2013 

It has finally dawned on me why the gun lobbyists have such a powerful influence on legislators, both state and national. Lawmakers talk a lot about creating jobs. Hundreds of jobs are created as a result gun violence: first responders, detectives, doctors of many specialties, nurses, physical therapists, court personnel, prison guards, morticians and the list goes on and on. Just think how many jobs would be lost if there were strict gun-control laws.
