You can go to the inner city Democrat strongholds and count the murders and shootings.
You can use a per ca-pita chart to demonstrate there is as much murder in Republican areas.
You can call each other out and blame each other till the cows come home.
You can claim all the guns should be taken away
You can claim the guns will be out there laws or no laws and likely everyone will be right.
The problem is gun violence is a problem for the society at large, not because guns are bad
but because mental health issues are not being dealt with in a meaningful way. Think about
it school shootings are really recent activities. Sure there has always been gun murders,
It is also true that gun murders have taken place in the worlds most peaceful places including
where guns are illegal.
Mental health is the single biggest problem, and that is also part of the social ills that afflict a
modern society. The world is changing too fast for some, there are those who feel estranged
from society and substance abuse issues, joblessness, and the list goes on.
But hey, we have cheap taxes and people have a right to sleep under bridges.
Until we as a people find solutions to the problem of mental illness people will act out their
fantasies and frustrations. and they will do so with guns that are legal or illegal. Again we
in North America are going to look out past the real issues and deal with the immediate symptoms
Yes automatic weapons, and large clip ammo packaging should be limited. Background checks
for mental issue gun permit applicants should be set up. That could best be done by gun clubs
on a piecework for payment basis and those computers linked. Governments don't need total
control of the agenda. There are all kinds of economical ways to check for criminals and those
with mental illness. The real problem of mental illness should be funded and a program to help
them would be far better in the long run. A crazy person can kill people in a thousand different
ways besides a gun. Do we want to feel better or do we want a safer society?
