I would have added other tags like "gun culture" but I don't have permission. This article was linked on my friends Tommy Jordon, who became a Youtube sensation for shooting his daughters laptop with a 45. It was posted on http://www.intercollegiatereview.com written by Ben Peterson | Intercollegiate Review Gun Availability Isn’t Gun Culture | Intercollegiate Review From the article: A society where citizens maintain the right to bear arms must maintain a gun culture that instills the corresponding obligation to preserve life. The recent rise in mass shootings, and high levels of suicide by gun since the 1980s, suggest that as a nation we are failing at this. The Newtown episode resulted at least in part from such a failure; the shooter’s parents reared him in an environment with access to guns but did not ensure that he imbibed the respect for life that must correspond, or address his mental and emotional problems..... Since basic gun regulations are not working in our most violent cities, and are unlikely to prevent mass shootings, we have two broad options: (1) ditch the current interpretation of the Second Amendment, allowing state legislatures or even Congress to follow the United Kingdom and Europe, with extremely limited gun ownership; or (2) restore gun culture, rightly understood. This is my response on Tommy's FB page to reading this very good article. Facebook Tommy I agree good article but I disagree they way he throws out there the two choices of the UK /AU model vs Restoring the model we grew up in. He left out enforcing the current laws and the delicate challenge of keeping the mentally ill from getting access. Newtown and The Movie guys for sure should have been stopped sooner, but where to draw the line for vets returning from the battle field or some one who seeks temp help to cope for a wife, parent or child dying. We see the current admin trying this tactic with the elderly in our country.
