Both of those and the media portrayal as both sides.
The truth is always in the middle. There is too much gun violence in the USA, but it is not nearly what the media portrays it to be.
Measures should be taken for it to be harder for some random f**kwit to murder innocents, but stricter gun control laws right now will do absolutely nothing for the main issue right now. The violent offender looking to cause harm with a weapon already has that weapon.
The proposed laws only work for the future. The solutions for right now aren't so obvious. And I dont know what solution you could have that would stop somebody that has a weapon today wanting to go out and kill people tomorow OTHER than a complete weapon ban which I can assure you will never work in the US. There would be war.
I also don't like the ommission of the fact that most mass shootings in the US happen in the innercity against a population that people just don't care about.
Chicago is like a war zone and it is NEVER REPORTED with any sort of sincerity or concern. But it isn't reported, because to be reported, gun violence has to happen to citizens that people have to care about.
This shit also pisses me off.
I believe ALL Americans should have the ability to feel safe and secure in their own homes and neighborhoods.
To me I don't place one American life over another. Others don't feel the same way, if they did, they would realize America has a gun violence problem along time before white people started getting killed by randos.
This kind of stuff also gets on my nerves when US media starts talking about all kinds of other foreign issues. We need to get our own house in order first.
Anyways, end of night rant.
