Sean Davis, MBA Biography

Title:
Cofounder and CFO of The Federalist
Position:
Con to the question "Should More Gun Control Laws Be Enacted?"
Reasoning:

“[W]hat we do know is that nine innocent men and women were slaughtered in a mandatory gun-free zone by an evil madman wielding a gun.

More gun laws won’t prevent evil people from doing evil things. Human nature cannot be legislated away. No amount of laws can ever eliminate evil acts committed by evil men. But gun control laws like those in South Carolina certainly can eliminate the ability of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves from those who intend to do evil. And that’s a tragedy.”
