Common Sense

Deaths from heroin have passed deaths from firearms for the first time ever:

Opioid deaths continued to surge in 2015, surpassing 30,000 for the first time in recent history, according to CDC data released Thursday.

That marks an increase of nearly 5,000 deaths from 2014. Deaths involving powerful synthetic opiates, like fentanyl, rose by nearly 75 percent from 2014 to 2015.

Perhaps what we need are…

…wait for it…

…commonsense heroin control laws?

  1. I’m guessing that in the last two years since that article was published, the problem, the so-called opioid crisis, has gotten much worse requiring ever more invasive government practices to prevent people with a real, constant, and *legal* need for pain medications to get them. To save a bunch of addicts who’ll just use something else.

    Sort of like preventing people with a real, constant, and *legal* need for a means of self-defense from getting weapons.

  2. The uneducated, Democrat Negro base in Chicago killed 12 and wounded 64 over the weekend. One city, 2 days….

    We must be awash in opiates.

  3. commonsense heroin control laws

    There are new laws all over the country limiting the amount and dosage allowed for prescriptions.

    Of course, just like gun control, it is only hindering the law-abiding people who really need them. And will do little if anything to thwart crimes outside of doctors over-prescribing. It won’t touch the illicit trades.
