I am appalled. Appalled that conservative activists are content with children being slaughtered by assassins carrying AK-47 rifles – as long as gun owners' rights are not curtailed. Stop calling the other side hypocrites, that in itself is hypocritical; we need you to act now!
And there is plenty we can do. Everybody knows there are three components to every crime: Desire, Ability, and Opportunity. And our best chances to prevent a crime is to intervene in all three areas. And that we can do.
For example. by effectively addressing mental health issues or by banning movies that glorify violence, by making assault rifles illegal or strengthening gun control laws, and by having armed guards or metal detectors at high-schools.
We are beyond the point where we need to do “something;” we need to do “everything.”
