The United States of Guns

Hand-Gun

America is a stuck in a Groundhog Day loop of gun violence. We’ll keep waking up, stuck in the same reality of oppression, carnage, and ruined lives until we can figure out how to effect meaningful change. I’ve collected some articles here about America’s dysfunctional relationship with guns, most of which I’ve shared before. Change is possible — there are good reasons to control the ownership of guns and control has a high likelihood of success — but how will our country find the political will to make it happen? More here.

Doesn’t matter what anyone says. It will just carry on and the rest of us with laugh and cry at the situation many times over in the future.

One thought on “The United States of Guns

  1. Living in Canada, 45 minutes from the U.S. border, I used to like living beside the U.S. I thought they had a great country, reasonably well run, who we could deal with as friends. Sure they had their past and present problems and issues (and I don’t mean to belittle any of them) as do most countries, but generally things were good. Now when my daughter-in-law talks about taking the grandkids to DisneyWorld I cringe inside. It used to be when people talked about lying next to the elephant, it was cute, because we knew the elephant would look out for us if we needed it. Now I’d like to build a wall, and we’ll pay for it.
