And another one in Dayton, OH. We were just talking about this over coffee. A copy of the latest Guns & Ammo is sitting on the kitchen table. Haven't paid for it in two years - just on some subscription list that never ends. On the cover is yet another AR style rifle - this one being billed as a 'recce pistol' whatever the F that is. I heard Wolf Blitzer asking the Chief LEO in El Paso about 'bump stocks' and 'what can be done' and to my surprise his answer was concealed carry - and that it had already saved dozens of lives in Texas. That caught me off guard. Guns simply aren't going away and aren't going to be confiscated, at least in this country. Even if we did there would be secondary economic effects - lots of $$ in that industry. Unlikely. Personally, I'd like to see the firearms industry do more to visibly support training, education, hunting than make more 'recce pistols' that have only one purpose. I'd like to see the entire board of directors of the NRA be sent as the first Mars colonists. But pointing to the weapons and various features as the root of the problem is a distraction. I won't argue that I'd like to snap my fingers and make a lot of them disappear but don't think that even begins to address the real issue. A variation on the 'my spoons made me fat' argument. Almost universally the profile is a young disaffected white male and we'll eventually find he had some sort of online manifesto or odd behavior that we will all be aware of before long - that no doubt could be interpreted as warning signs. When you think about it much of the entertainment young people consume a lot of it is quite graphic and violent and even involves shooting up rooms full of people. Even our superheroes are shooting at each other. Crap, I was flipping through the channels watching John Wick last night and thought that even the parents of kids like that are steeped in the same violent bullshit. When I was a kid a movie like that would be given an X rating for the extreme violence. Couple access to firearms with the immediacy and lack of social responsibility in anonymous online communication and I can see how a young kid with problems could be twisted. Our society teaches kids to dehumanize the world around them either through social media, the games played or what's on TV.
