So there’s been another shooting.And this is just the kind you read about, not some accident where a kid playing with his dad’s gun blasts a hole in his friend. It’s not a story about gang violence either.
When are we going to have better gun control laws?
By which I mean laws that say there should be zero guns on the street. Zero.
Are we stupid?
Japan has tight gun control laws. In 2008, 11 people died there from guns. In 2008, 12,000 people died in the US from guns.
I”m not ‘taking advantage of tragedy” to talk about my “side.”
I’m being safety conscious.
Dressing this conversation as “political” is an easy way to dismiss it. To make it sound less serious: Like something I’m saying to because I read some smart policy paper and hope to win over voters and donations.
This is not an “issue.”
It’s dead bodies.
