We hear about another murder and react to it like its completely shocking that anyone would kill someone else in this manner (with a gun). Then, almost like it never really happened, the topic moves to the inherent danger of a gun in the hands of unstable folks like its the only option for them. Within a couple minutes of the event, the perpetrator and the Victims melt away from the focus to the point that the only area of discussion left is guns good or bad!
First off, with the many millions of free Americans that live in our country, at least a few busloads of them are nuts, bonkers, toys in the attic and unsafe with anything sharp or powerful in their possession any time anywhere. A portion of them get weeded out prior to any real unbelievable malfunctions but many evade and avoid detection until its too late.
Secondly, if the ones that avoid being corrected get the urge to go postal, limiting their ability to concoct a 15 minutes of fame, then die In Place scenario is beyond possible for lawmakers or we the people! The TX Chainsaw Massacres, the Hillside stranglers, Jack the Rippers and others like them show that nothing will prevent someone hell bent on senseless murder from trying what they will. About the only way to stop them is wait till they are done and pray they kill themselves or hopefully some right thinking respondent can muster up a defensive action like returning fire.
When we hear of a tragic death caused by Drunken Drivers or Arsonists, we dont try to ban cars and bic lighters, we intelligently eliminate the access by that person (if they survive) not the populace that didnt drive drunk or burn down their house! Guns, Automobiles, Lighters and Gasoline are tools not adjectives of evil. Eliminating classes of weapons because of a couple loose cannons is like banning circular saws because a few idiots chop their fingers off. No such thing as a steel loose cannon, without a hand to direct the ignition of the fuse, its just a paper weight.
28 dead is scary, sad and in some creative progressives minds highly preventable but reality wise, senseless tragedies are just that, senseless and without provocation or systematic commonality of commitment to prevent. We cannot prevent what makes no logical or discernible sense to happen in the first place. Its impossible to imagine every method and manner a defective mind can and will conjure terror and panic with their warped perception of the here and now.
Lastly, why do we hate the nut case worse than the uncaring normal killer? This turd goes postal and kills 27 at the same time 3 non-defective adults get drunk at three different bars and kill 20 people in 3 separate accidents and thats normal? I dont get that logic, its 1 + 1 = dead no matter how you look at it!
Who doesnt want utopia? The problem begins when utopia is progressed by law instead of common sense, we all lose...
