robomatic BS: Shooting tragedies and guns (1295* d) RE: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns 15 Nov 19


As exhibited above, there is an amount of complexity to the issue that makes simple statements and snap reactions impede our discussion of and mutual understanding of the issue.

The other point I'd make, separately from the one above (which I owe to Michael Connelly, writer of the Prey series), is the statement of Wayne LaPierre that “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” This ignores that the gun itself is not neutral in that statement; for it reveals a good guy to be a bad guy all too often.
