Common Snse Gun Laws - The Way Forward

 

The debate over gun laws continues after the dreadful shooting of the news crew of WDBJ7 news channel. Our thoughts and condolences go out to the family, friends and co-workers of  Alison Parker and Adam Ward.

Politicians are responding in a variety of ways from seeing the incident as one to bring about more sensible gun laws and others stating yet again it is the people not the guns at fault.

Predisend Obama is quoted,”it breaks my heart every time you read or hear about these kinds of incidents … [It is] one more argument for why we need to look at how we can reduce gun violence.”

Hillary Clinton, the Democrat presidential candidate stated that, she wished the incident would be “what it will hopefully finally take for us to act”.

Ben Carson and Jim Gilmore both blame the people not the guns, “Politicians were wrong today to go out there and begin to do the same old song about gun control when that is not the issue.

It’s infuriating because it’s diverting us away from what we can do to solve this problem and that is to identify people who are unstable.”

So once again the politicans are divided, but do they know what the folks on the streets want anymore? Do the folks on the street know what they want? Do you think it is a mental health problem or should we be looking at more ‘common sense’ gun laws?

Another cause of concern to me is the reporting of this incident, the fact that someone filmed the incident and then put the video on Facebook and Twitter, bad enough it happened on live TV but to to then to further distress family, it was being replayed on social media sites -wrong on so many levels. Whilst the above videos where removed it still brings the question of what is actually put onto social media and how it can be or should be controlled.
