"God is a bullet have mercy on us everyone", is a song by the band Concrete Blonde. The execution style murders of a classroom of first-grade children and their teachers, in Newtown, Conneticut is making the entire pro-gun argument seem less reasonable.
Gun control works. The right to send your child to school, to live safely in your community and general public safety is stronger, than continuing this climate, of paranoia against our great democracy and putting guns into the hands of dangerous people.
Some solutions might be: a federal government buy-back program to take about a third of all guns out of circulation run by the police. This was very effective in Austrailia after a mass shooting. Also, to prosecute anyone who lies on a gun permit application as currently there are 77 thousand applications that were rejected for not reporting criminal and significant mental health histories. Mandatory ackground checks for 100% if all gun purchases. firstname.lastname@example.org
