John Rocker+Guns=Happy

John Rocker is, I’m guessing, a half full sort of guy.

He looks at the Holocaust and thinks, “Boy, if only those 6 million Jews had 6 million guns, there’d be 6 million people who hadn’t died.”

I, on the other hand, am a half empty sort of guy. I look at the Holocaust and think, “My great-grandmother was killed in a concentration camp, and my grandma and grandpa had to flee their native land for America. How tragically awful.”

That’s all I have to say about that.

The mass shootings like Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech, both Colorado area shootings, et al seem to get a lot of play in the U.S. and of course at that time the pro/anti gun movements heat up.

Where is the similar outrage for the fact that Chicago had over 500 murders, a 25% increase over 2011? The majority of those also gun related. Other cities in the US have similar numbers.

Or is the outrage only reserved for mass shootings?

Firearms training should begin in elementary school and be mandatory. It is a right of passage. Instead of spending billions to take away our guns, let’s spend the money on training. If every citizen was carrying and skilled with a gun, there would never ever be any crime again.
