It seems almost daily we have news of another mass shooting. The news push various agendas and find someone to blame. On one day they say it was a lone wolf. Other times they call it a hate crime. In some circles they call these maniacs domestic terrorists. All the terms and blame circles around and in the end nothing is done.
It's because we don't confront the real problem.
Guns are the problem. It's not the crazies.
Europe has crazies, but they don't have the level of murder and mass-shootings we have in America. Australia banned guns and violence plummeted. Compare the level of gun violence in America to all the other advanced nations of the world - we have a dramatically higher level of murder/mass-shootings than all of them COMBINED.
Let me say that again -
There is more murder in America than all the other advanced nations combined.
It's time to change that. Our streets are awash in guns. That is the problem. Stop blaming crazies. It's not crazies. The facts tell us a different story.
It's the guns.
I don't claim to have all the answers. I just know that until we start having an honest conversation about the real and root cause of the problem, we will never change anything.
