The horror of man killing man is biblically ancient. But by severely restricting the sale of weapons, especially handguns and semiautomatic weapons, death by gunfire can be essentially eradicated.
In 2008 there were over 12,000 homicides attributed to guns in the US. In Japan, where gun ownership is among the lowest in the world, 11 murders were related to firearms that year. The contrast is as chilling as it is stark.
It is time for the political scum who enable this killing to either reform or be washed away.
