You can tell that America is out of control and not being run by any form of logic or reason when so many pieces of legislation are nothing but ‘knee-jerk’ reactions to the behavior of only a few people. It’s the same as punishing everyone in a company because one employee did something wrong or unethical.

This is what is happening in Illinois in reaction to the Waffle House shooting in Tennessee. Travis reinking had his guns confiscated by Illinois authorities but the guns were returned to his father under the promise that they would not be given back to the son. Guess what, dad broke his promise and returned the guns to his son.

An amendment attached to another bill would require court approval for any similar type of firearm transfer.

(Fox Illinois) – Illinois lawmakers on both sides of the aisle agree, it’s time to stop gun violence.

“It’s a terrible tragedy and it seems to be happening on a daily if not weekly basis,” Rep. Marty Moylan, D-Western Springs, said.

Early Sunday morning, Morton native Travis Reinking killed four people after opening fire at a Waffle House outside of Nashville.

Authorities said the gun used in the shooting was taken away from Reinking in 2017.

Nashville Police said his father later returned it to him…

On the surface, this law sounds logical and a way to keep people like Reinking from obtaining confiscated guns but then again, the father did agree not to give the guns back to his son and did so anyway. What is to stop someone like the father from knowingly violating the law by returning the firearms to a son or loved one anyway? In this case, the father knew he was wrong and still did it, so what difference will another law make?
