Anger and Guns

2013-01-09 – While I support a certain measure of gun control, I don’t see that gun control is going to be a broad solution to violence in this country.

This is an angry country.

I’m not sure why. It’s partly the entitlement mentality that I talked about last week. It’s the idea that drives AIG to sue the federal government that saved its AISS. What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine.

And it’s not just guns. It’s lawyers. The United States has more lawyers per capital than any other country in the world. More lawyers than doctors. More lawyers that soldiers.

If we have a problem, we file suit. There is no negotiation (though the process is so bogged down that you end up negotiating anyway). People don’t know how to settle things. People don’t take responsibility for their action. Everyone is right. No one is wrong.

It’s interesting that the left always makes sure to protect the legal profession in the same way that the right protects guns.

If you’re too angry to file suit, you shoot someone. It’s your right, after all.

So, restricting guns might cool off a few people, but the whole country is mad.

Maybe we need to have a discussion about that. But no one knows how to have discussions. They only know how to divide themselves up into good guys and bad guys and insult each other.

That’s the truth.

And you better not argue with it.
