Doctors don’t cure disease by treating the symptoms. Banning guns doesn’t address the huge problem of why more and more people turn to violence. If not a gun then a car, a truck, a bomb, or whatever. The entertainment industry worships gun violence by churning out movies and video games depicting extreme violence. The press makes every violent nutcase a headline and makes them famous.
If anyone really thinks that gun bans will solve the problem of violence, they must live in a fantasy world. Forrest Gump’s mom said it best: “Stupid is as stupid does.”
