When public support for gun control peaked after the Newtown mass murder, the National Rifle Association (NRA) decided to double down.
The necessary corollary to the NRA pitch is that anyone who does kill with a gun must have been “crazy.” So the solution to the violence problem is not to control the guns—instead, it is to identify and control the crazy people who are the only ones who misuse them.
The National Rifle Association propaganda has it all wrong. Most violent acts are committed by people who are not crazy.
Only one thing is predictable with statistical certainty. If there are more guns in the schools, streets, offices, military bases, and homes, more of them will be fired and more people will be killed.
