Frequently we see the case against gun control entirely grounded upon a Constitutional defense of the Second Amendment.

For one, the Constitution was not meant to grant

Police Killed More Americans Last Year Than Mass Shooters

Some 590 Americans were killed in mass shootings last year, that figure almost pales in comparison to the number of Americans subjected to gun violence by police.

This spring, an estimated 800,000 Americans gathered in Washington, DC to participate in the “March for Our Lives” organized by the teenage survivors of the school massacre in Parkland, Florida. Thousands more attended 800 sister marches across the nation and around the world for gun reform. Gun control is often portrayed as a “white” issue, but

Ten days before American student outrage over gun violence triggered multitudes across the U.S and around the world to join in “March For Our Lives” protests; many US high school educators and other adults provided students with strident lessons in assholelisity.

Normalizing Guns: Trump and the NRA See Opportunity in Tragedy

It’s been lurking around for awhile now — this peculiar calculus that the more people who are shot, the more guns we need. It’s a great business model if you’re in the business of guns, or if your re-election depends on the outfits and people who are in the business of guns.

While the outrage and horror being expressed about the most recent mass school shooting that took place on Valentine’s Day in Florida is certainly warranted, the anger is incredibly displaced. Anger, disappointment, fear and sadness are all acceptable and understandable emotions to experience after an event such as this takes place in the United
