11. My oldest brother was really into guns.

Yes, I said "was." He got depressed one night and killed himself with one.

14. How does that happen?

The bunch of times? A whole bunch of misfires or was aiming at his own head a challenge?

4. My dear friend Betty, who introduced me to DU, was a postal employee at a time

when there were many instances of violence in the PO's. I prayed for their safety daily. She told me this PO joke: "How do you know when the PO is hiring? The flags are at half staff."

13. Not "stress" but stress from racism and discrimination. Search it out. The history is all there.

 

I don't have the stats at hand but a lot or workplace violence was and continues to be because of discrimination of some kind.

8. What are guns and ammunition used for?

Settling grievances, expressing displeasure and solving personal problems.

It is a bad bargain we have made with the armed and the would-be.

10. When the murderer takes their own life, they should say "Two killed, plus one nobody dead."
