I would rather see stricter gun control legislation. How many more tragedies do we have to suffer before we take the action New Zealand has taken after just one incident? Let’s ban assault weapons, and weapon enhancements such as oversized clips and armor piercing rounds. Let’s also have a reasonable waiting period, and proper background checks. Lets require that people get a license for which they must pass a basic gun safety test, and require that parents with children prove they have a decent gun safe adequate to hold all their firearms. And finally, let’s call opponents of this kind of thing out in public as being in favor of mass murder and school shootings. So far, hopes and prayers have done nothing about this problem, so clearly anyone who promotes *that* as some kind of solution is either an idiot or doesn’t actually want to solve the problem. Let’s *actually* make schools safer by getting some of the gunpowder of the environment. Let’s stop accepting the weak ass argument that “this won’t fix the problem %100”. This kind of legislation would be worth it if it reduced the problem by *any* amount. If it saved even *one* life, it would be a success. And don’t try and tell me none of this would work at all; other countries have done similar things and they all got a lot safer. Let’s have the moral courage to stand up to the gun lobby, and do the right thing.
