School shootings, church shootings, concert shootings have all been done by white boys, homegrown. They used guns to kill, guns no person needs except for killing people. You don't hunt deer with semi automatic weapons or fully automatic weapons. After Las Vegas, bump stocks have still not been taken off the market. This IS a gun problem. Seat belts and air bags were added to cars... Trucks have bars that prevent cars from sliding under them since Jayne Mansfield was decapitated in an accident... Cigarettes cannot be advertised, nor can they be used in public places, in restaurants, inside closed cars... The mentally ill could not purchase guns until Trump repealed Obama's restrictions. Now if you can open carry in your own state, you can go to a state where it is outlawed and carry there. The police including the FBI cannot do anything to anyone until a crime is committed. Ronald Reagan had at least 8 armed guards around him when one man shot him. Get real. It is a gun problem. In Australia, when there was a school shooting in 1996 it only took 12 days for legislation to ban all semi and automatic weapons. With in one month all those weapons were voluntarily turned in or confiscated. They have had no mass shootings since 1996. They have plenty of people with guns in their country, an outback like our Wild West, but all guns are registered and all owners must show clean backgrounds. Every time we have a mass shooting more people go out and buy guns. Now explain to me why an 18 year old with a troubled history was able to purchase an AR-15? And it's NOT a gun problem? Excuse me?
I think if you think keeping your mouth shut to appease the people you know will make your life better, you had better think again. Speaking up does lead to better dialogue and make strides in moving forward...
