In fact, I think we should leverage the gun argument to make the case for reproductive freedom. For all personal freedom really.

I think gun control is a lost idea for a while. There are too many guns out there. It would be like trying to stop drugs. We know how well that has gone. Guns should be made more expensive. Bullets should be more expensive. Tax them the way we do cigarettes, booze and pot.

It's sad when a person decides to take another person's life. Tragic. But this has been a problem since humans became humans.

The bigger problem is hate. White nationalist. Cristofacist. Whatever else. Certain groups of humans have become toxic. That's where we need to focus.

I also read the cops were in pursuit of the shooter when he crashed his car near the school.

I'm not against gun laws or background checks. I just think the gun industry and private individuals selling guns are pretty much like drug cartels. They are way past operating lawfully.
