The solution is not “MORE GUNS.”
I don’t even know who is responsible yet. Haven’t heard one word regarding the shooters or their backgrounds.
I’ll bet at least one of them is clinically mentally ill, and probably all of them are.
Part of the solution is “BETTER AND MORE COMPREHENSIVE CARE FOR THE MENTALLY ILL.”
Another part of the solution is “BETTER AND MORE COMPREHENSIVE BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR GUN PURCHASES, PARTICULARLY WITH RESPECT TO MENTAL ILLNESS.”
A third part of the solution is “GET RID OF THE FUCKING SIGNS THAT TELL CRAZY PEOPLE THAT THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOBODY IN THIS BUILDING CAPABLE OF SHOOTING BACK AT YOU.”
The gun-free zones are not helping, folks.
But the fact is, whether I’m carrying a gun or not, if I’m wearing this t-shirt:
someone looking to cause trouble is going to look for an easier target. Human nature is human nature.
