300 Million Didn’t Commit Murder

Posted January 10th, 2011 by Jim Ettwein

In spite of the utterances from the Right and the Left. In spite of mentions of guns in the media. In spite of so many things, all these people DIDN’T commit murder or violence. Why?

Well, mostly because they’re not crazies. They’re not demented. They’re not intent on killing anyone. So, do we revise how we talk because of one loon? One maniac? One wacko? No.

We cannot revise the behavior of 300+ million people every time someone takes their own independent action contrary to our laws. We don’t live that way. It’s what makes a society, with certain values and certain accepted behavior.

To do otherwise would paint us into an ever decreasing box. One in which we wouldn’t fit in a short time. rr

    I no expert but I would guess there’s only one fingerprint on that trigger.

    That’s ‘I’m no expert…’ I don’t type well when I’m angry.

    The contrasts between the media and WH’s reaction to this vs. the Ft. Hood massacre speak volumes.
