UCC tragedy: No solution if we misidentify the problem

Ignoring the deaths of thousands while at the same time exploiting the deaths of a handful is not the answer

Solving the problem will never happen if we continue to misidentify the problem.

Facts are available, statistics are clear and yet many jump on a popular bandwagon of achieving a goal while pretending to be solving a problem.

I am very open to a discussion on how we can reduce mass school / theatre shootings.

At the same time we can have the discussion on how we can help prevent mass killings in our inner cities all across the country. These killings occur on a weekly basis and have in many cities doubled and even tripled in the last few years.

There is no simple single answer but it is clear that ignoring the deaths of thousands while at the same time exploiting the deaths of a handful is not the answer.

    One thing you could do is require mandatory background checks. And if there is an anamoly- like one guy buying 40 guns at a gun show, allow the police to ask some questions.
    From the AP, October 1, 2015

    “CHICAGO (AP) – A Chicago man convicted of helping to buy more than 40 guns in Indiana and then transporting them for sale on the streets of Chicago has been sentenced to just over three years in prison.

    A Thursday statement from the U.S. Attorney’s office in Chicago says 25-year-old Winston Geralds purchased the weapons at gun shows in Indianapolis and Crown Point, Indiana. A Chicago buyer was cooperating with federal agents.

    The government’s sentencing memorandum says Geralds “very directly contributed to the cycle of gun violence” in Chicago.

    Geralds pleaded guilty in May to one count of illegally transporting firearms across state lines. U.S. District Judge John Lee sentenced him in federal court in Chicago. .

    Five others have also been charged in the case.”

    Frankly, Mr. Anderson, I don’t think you care about any kinds of shootings — you barely found the energy to write a couple of meaningless, stereotypical paragraphs about them.

    Don’t worry, this will all blow over. Until the next time children are slaughtered. Women are slaughtered. Maybe even one of your family members.

    But hey, at least you wrote a tiny little blog post about it, huh?
