Zero Defects and Sandy Hook

The idea of zero defects in manufacturing is attributed to Philip Crosby, who penned the book Absolutes of Quality Management.  The idea has been implemented by many manufacturers over the years, including Ford Motor Company.  While the idea of zero defects, and quality control, have merit in the world of manufacturing, in practice, zero defects in manufacturing are unattainable, as the search term zero defects+Ford Motor Company illustrates.

The idea of zero defects, and humans’ inability to achieve zero defects, is what came to mind today when I read the following words of Obama outlining his desire for more restrictive gun control during his appearance on Meet The Press.

“I’m going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.”

Unfortunately Obama, like most gun control advocates, does not seem to comprehend that it is not guns that are the problem, nor that more restrictions on guns will in no way “make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.”  It is a zero defect dream.  It is not a gun problem.

Quote obtained from a The Hill blog post titled Obama hopes to enact new gun-control measures in 2013.

  1. They need a bigger boat.
    The anti-gunners.
    The old one ain’t workin’ anymore.
    Too many people are hip to their ploy because they used it too much.
    It ain’t the guns, stupid.
    It’s the anti-gunners.

    What can you say about the people that want to disarm others so that they may be victimized by criminals?

    That is what they did to the public schools and they have the blood of all the victims all over their hands.

    But yet still they stand there and blame inanimate objects. What, are they brain dead?

  2. “Unfortunately Obama, like most gun control advocates, does not seem to comprehend that it is not guns that are the problem”

    Oh yes he does. Obama, the democrats, and the MSM are all well aware that putting restrictions on guns only is successful in dis-arming the law abiding public. What is unfolding is a cynical manipulation of a tragedy in the cause of furthering a specific political agenda. That agenda is dis-arming the vast majority of citizens, i.e. the law-abiding public.

    If Obama actualy believed that guns really are a problem, explain why his administration was hip deep in the Fast & Furious operation?
