Two horrific events, in short order. Devastating loss of life. Mourning families. And before they can even bury the dead, the lines got drawn pretty quick (which isn’t unusual never let a tragedy go unused).
On one side the “we aren’t coming for your guns EXCEPT…” and on the other “MOAR GUNZ SOLVES EVERYTHING!”
I’ll leave you with two facts:
- Columbine happened 5 years after the first Assault Weapons Ban.
- Both Buffalo and Uvalde had “good guys with guns.”
Maybe guns aren’t the problem or the solution? Maybe it’s time to try something different?
