Paul Craig Roberts on LewRockwell.com writes about the real culprit in gun violence. He writes (abridged):
The first American mass shooting was the Clock Tower shooting at the University of Texas in 1966 by an ex-Marine suffering from a brain tumor which apparently unbalanced him. Since that time mass shootings have increased in occurrence. Instead of investigating what has happened to the culture or the pills people pop that results in mass shootings, guns get blamed.
“Gun violence” assumes that a gun is an independent actor. The gun chooses to engage in violence. This is nonsense. Violence originates in the person, but many weapons are used to commit violence. The problem resides in the person, not in the weapon chosen. The question is what has happened to the culture that it turns out people without moral awareness and self-control.
Ask yourself who removed moral restraint from our lives and you will know the guilty party.
