When a drunk driver plows into a car and kills a family of 5 there's neve any talk about closing bars and banning the sale of alcohol. And it's never referred to as "car violence". But no hesitation to call any shooting as "gun violence" rather than mentally deranged people violence. No talk about the number of shooting in Chicago this past weekend and talk of bringing "stop and frisk" and patrolling the streets with aggressive police action. But the simple minded politicians, as we knew they would, immediately start the talk of banning high cap magazines, military rifles being sold to civilians (and no military rifles have yet to be used in any mass shooting in the United States that I'm aware of) and even mass confiscation. They predictably take the easy was to legislate social problems. The liberal element are stepping forward en mass with some form of gun legislation. Shootings have been in "gun free zones". Another idiotic way to deal with deranged, troubled people. Why not just replace the "no concealed guns" signs with signs stating "no killing in this establishment". Sure the lunatics would heed those signs and move along to a place welcoming active shooters. The politicians seem to always seek a simple solution to a very complex problem. I was a police officer for a number of years and being actively proactive was much more effective than simply being reactive. And how many of these people involved in the shootings have sent out warning signs that were simply ignored because either they were minors or loop holes in such laws that would keep these people off the streets and out of the public domain.
