What is wrong with people...

When you trust your government enough to want them to be the only ones with guns...?

Too extreme?

How about;

When you trust your government to make all of the rules regarding guns...?

Still too extreme?

Lets try;

When you trust one party, one ideology, to create all of the rules governing guns?

Who is asking;

Why do our children want to kill each other?  

There have been 13 "mass" casualty events in our schools since 1966 when records started being kept on the subject.  The first "mass" shooting at a school in the US didn't actually occur until 1989.  15 people have perpetrated those 13 events.  

Anyway, as horrible as I feel about the loss of life, I cannot understand the lack of willingness to engage in honest, responsible, truthful dialog that isn't colored by emotion or ideology.  

Gun control can't solve the problem.  To solve the problem, we must find the source.  Why do our children kill each other?  Why are we so unwilling to do that?
