Along with the sign makers/protesters, how about a demand for improving mental illness treatments…..how about protesting the killing of millions of babies by PP, funded by taxpayer money?

I know it feels like you’re accomplishing something putting up these signs, but if you’ll think objectively for a second, you’ll see that none of these laws you want to propose will achieve anything. It’s like asking for better tobacco control laws – just a misdirection of energy and resources.

I don’t have the answer either on how to stop killings with or without whatever weapons, but that’s the problem to focus on, not ‘gun violence’. Is knife violence OK?
