We have become unwilling witnesses to another mass shooting, this time at yet another school. Those who claim this is a “mental health” issue know nothing about mental health. Those who claim we can predict who will be the next shooter know nothing about prediction. Those who claim that guns are not the problem know nothing about reality. Thoughts and prayers do nothing to solve the problem and, in fact, deny the gravity of the pain involved.
The 2nd Amendment is long overdue for revision; at the very least regarding assault-type weapons, high capacity magazines, background checks, and ownership anonymity.
Five percent of Americans support the NRA position on gun rights. They have no business dictating the narrative on this issue. For crying out loud, even lawn darts are illegal in the USA. Weapons of mass destruction should be similarly outlawed.
