    Is that supposed to somehow equate with what we call "gun violence"today?

    So where is your condemnation for blacks who target whites simply because they are white? It happens regularly in America yet the media and people like yourself mostly ignore it.

    Interesting that you mention Billy the Kid without seeming to know the context. He became famous as an "outlaw" (wrong side of a conflict) during the Lincoln County Range War, where the law was in...

    That is exactly how I feel about it. When you ask “what can we do” it somewhat narrows the options.

    To bridge the gap, 2 options.

    There’s another problem with comparing the “everyday usefulness” of cars and guns. Not everyone in America drives. Many urban residents don’t own a car so they walk, bicycle, and use public...

    Unfortunately too many in the USA think "It can't happen here" and refuse to accept that ANY government can turn on you if you aren't careful.

    Everybody is acting as if this is something new. The U.S. has a long history of alternating between supporting and ignoring the Kurds. Every time they engage with us they are well aware of what may...
