3. Once again: mass shootings shouldn't drive gun policy.

 

Even with the convenient reclassification of any shooting with more than one victim as a "mass shooting," they are enormously outnumbered by single-victim shootings, a large percentage of which are drug-related and/or carried out by persons with significant criminal records. Our first priority should be a combination of ending the insane Drug War and taking steps to limit the flow of handguns to criminals.
