sThere was another mass shooting yesterday in which 50 people died and 53 were injured. Almost immediately the press and politicians were looking where to place the blame. It was Christian conservatives, gay bashers, ISIS, President Obama and just about everybody else. Let’s say for a second that there all to blame what are we going to do about it. Donald Trump wants to build walls ban Muslims others want to ban guns. I’m sorry to say none of these will work. They might stop organized terror plots but they won’t stop the crazy guy next door. If we had done all of this it wouldn’t of stopped the Oklahoma bombing or any of the school shootings. School related shooting aren’t just the type of gun is. I think the real culprit here might be money. The huge amounts that gun manufactures make the lack of money for schools so that classes might be smaller and teachers might be better trained to recognize troubled kids. If you’re looking to ban something, don’t ban Bambi from TV ban gang members from school until they have proven the no longer are affiliated. You know the old argument about gun control “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people”. That might be true but that doesn’t mean we should allow military grade weapons into the hands of civilians. The most common being the AR15 and AK 47 both of which are readily available in most gun stores. Part of the problem was that at the end of the Viet Nam war there literally thousands of these weapons sitting in warehouse all over the world. These weapons are the one of choice because they are cheap and easy to convert to fully automatic. Now I’ve said this before weapons like these with 30, 50, or 100 round magazines are not for recreation or sport they are designed strictly to kill people. These weapons are available because they high profit and be sold at affordable prices. Now I now yesterday’s shooter had an AR15 and a semi automatic pistol. Whether they had high capacity magazines I don’t know nor had the rifle been converted to fully automatic. What I do know was the shooter was able to walk into a gun store a few days earlier and purchase these weapons. The government says the manufactures can’t be held responsible for mass shootings. My question is those that mean they can just dump those weapons out there and never have to worry about what they’re used for. Maybe if one of their families had been a victim they might feel different, I doubt it since they are just a bunch of greedy bastards. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
