Abstract — En la práctica de la medicina, el cirujano no puede garantizar el resultado porque pueden ocurrir complicaciones; lo mismo puede pasar con las armas de fuego, que pueden ser usadas indebidamente por personas que no deberían tenerlas. Los políticos no deben utilizar tragedias debido a tiroteos callejeros como pretexto para dictar leyes que restrinjan la libertad a los ciudadanos que respetan las leyes, son responsables y saben que la libertad va junto con sus derechos constitucionales y responsabilidades civiles.
