Guns don’t kill people alone, people with guns kill people

01-gun-nut-cartoon

As the latest installment in the gun debate rages in the USA following the horrific multiple death shooting in Parkland, Florida I can’t help but be reminded of some of the ludicrous sayings that the pro-gun advocates often spout.

When was the last time you were shaken by breaking news that a deranged strangler was seen in a high school? 

I am conversant with several, including the granddaddy of these pithy little slogans is, of course, the infamous: Guns don’t kill people, people kill people. When was the last time you were shaken by breaking news that a deranged strangler was seen in a high school? Has a school ever been put on lock-down because a mentally ill person was stalking the halls threatening to choke or kick to death students and teachers? Of course not. Seems to me guns are killing people.

If, as a society, we could control mental illness it would be a wonderful thing in many ways, but as of yet, we can’t. However, the other variable in the guns don’t kill people equation is guns. As has been shown in countries such as Australia, these can be controlled.

So frankly it would be more accurate to say: guns don’t kill people alone, people with guns kill people. But if those people could not get those guns, who knows how many lives would be saved, not just in the large, media grabbing multiple killings, but also those lost in smaller almost daily shootings.

I fully support the right to arm bears.

Then we have the cute, if guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. Mass killings seem to be the purview of the mentally ill, not ‘outlaws’. This is along the lines of: an armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject. Sadly some people believe this nonsense.

I am not a gun person, yet I do have a favourite pithy statement myself: I fully support the right to arm bears.

My Long-Time Neighbour Is Sick

1280px-bad_godesberg2c_fontanestrac39fe_2-4
By Karsten Ratzke – Own work, CC0,

For as long as I can remember we’ve had the same neighbour. We go back years, decades, indeed centuries. We live in what in the real estate world is known as a semi-detached. Which of course means it is also semi-attached; we share one very long partition, I am hesitant to call it a wall, given what my neighbour has in mind for the other side of his house.

Oh, sure we have the occasional spat, a little falling out. But when push comes to shove we have each other’s back. 

We are so very similar in many ways, and get along just fine for the most part. Oh, sure we have the occasional spat, a little falling out. But when push comes to shove we have each other’s back. For instance, my neighbour had an ungodly upset about 17 years ago when one of the central family members was struck down in an egregious act of violence. We did what we could to help the situation and felt our bond grow stronger as often happens in difficult times.

Our cultures are similar, sports, arts, entertainment are all on the same track. Not identical mind you, but shall I say variations on a theme. The way we run our household is, again, on the surface comparable, yet dig deeper and it is almost like night and day.

We often spend time in each other’s place; in fact, we are each other’s most frequent visitor. Over the years many members of my extended family have married into my neighbour’s clan, and vice versa.

There is something akin to a cancer that courses through my neighbour. Perhaps it has always been there, but since a new head of the household moved in over a year ago, the vile malignancy has surfaced.

All in all, we are a pretty close pair. Which is why I write this. You see it has occurred to me recently, after poring over the vivid assay results, that my neighbour is sick, undeniably very ill. There is something akin to a cancer that courses through my neighbour. Perhaps it has always been there, but since a new head of the household moved in over a year ago, the vile malignancy has surfaced. For the most part this sickness manifests itself in relatively small flare-ups, but once every so often, frankly way too often, a major outbreak erupts that knocks everyone for a loop. One such episode occurred last week.

My sadness over my neighbour’s sickness is compounded by a strong feeling of frustration. You see, the illness, hideous though it is, is absolutely curable. Other neighbours in our community have suffered from similar afflictions, and have taken appropriate actions to remedy the situation. But my semi-detached neighbour not only refuses to consider the cure but rather insists on confronting the disease by applying even more disease.

I would be lying if I did not admit to also having a selfish desire to see my neighbour well, and that is the concern that, like popular culture, the disease may spread to our house.

We have been good neighbours for so long that it pains me deeply to see this lovely big household  (mind you our house is bigger even if our family is smaller)  afflicted in such a destructive manner. I hope that before it is too late my next-door neighbour will realize that something must be done to eradicate this infirmity. In conclusion, I must come clean, I would be lying if I did not admit to also having a selfish desire to see my neighbour well, and that is the concern that, like popular culture, the disease may spread to our house.

Time For Major GOP Funders To Withhold

180217141544-emma-gonzalez-fort-lauderdale-anti-gun-rally-2-17-2018-full-169

In the wake of yet another mass killing at yet another US school, the rallying cry has gone out to get elected officials to do something about the ridiculously easy access to high-powered guns in the United States. And as usual, one party, the Democrats, are standing with those shouting for an end, while Republicans blather on about “thoughts and prayers”.

Gun proponents often trot out the tired old saw that they believe explains how guns don’t kill people, people kill people. It’s cute but totally absurd. Guns don’t kill people: people with guns kill people. That’s just more simple logic: no guns = no gun deaths.

Is it that Republicans have little care for future victims? Do they not think the situation is now long out of hand? Well if they do they have a funny way of showing it. Sadly it all comes down to one thing in their stony hearts: money. Filthy lucre.

According to an Opinion piece in the New York Times from October 4, 2017:

Most Americans support stronger gun laws — laws that would reduce deaths. But Republicans in Congress stand in the way. They fear alienating their primary voters and the National Rifle Association.

I don’t know about their primary voters, but the National Rifle Association donates millions of dollars to candidates and spends millions more sponsoring events supporting primarily GOP candidates. In the last election, they spent upwards of $30M getting Donald Trump elected (of course, as we will all soon find out, the Russians helped out as well). No wonder he refuses to do anything about the situation. The logic is simple: it is not in the best financial interest of politicians to bite the hand that feeds them. And the NRA is a harsh master, threatening to withdraw funding at the mere mention of undeniably sane proposals (background checks for one). They are not big on the idea of compromise. No art of the deal for them.

Is it conceivable that a major donor to candidate X could threaten to withhold contributions unless the candidate refuses NRA money?

Gun proponents often trot out the tired old saw that they believe explains how guns don’t kill people, people kill people. It’s cute but totally absurd. Guns don’t kill people: people with guns kill people. That’s just more simple logic: no guns = no gun deaths.

But what if some of the other big donors took a stand? What if pressure was brought to bear on other large donors to GOP candidates? Is it conceivable that a major donor to candidate X could threaten to withhold contributions unless the candidate refuses NRA money? Should the gun control advocates be lobbying other major donors in an effort to get them to apply pressure?

Time to Amend the Second Amendment

I’m not a constitutional expert by any stretch of the imagination. As a lover of words I am fully aware that they can be squeezed, massaged and twisted to mean different things to different people. As the Led Zeppelin classic goes.”’Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.”  But sometimes that process can become downright asinine; no more so than the discussion that ensues in the wake of the all too frequent mass shootings.

The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

It does not read:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of a lone, demented, maniacal, homicidal, suicidal, psychopathic, lunatic bent on slaughtering as many innocent people as possible to stockpile and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

No part of ”well regulated” fits the most recent incident in Las Vegas. One cannot deny that something has to be done. Yet even those who dare to criticise the amendment are quick to point out, stating what has become a fashionable pre-amble, “Don’t get me wrong, I fully support the second amendment, but ….”

Mainstream Media and Russian Hacking

One often hears the term ‘mainstream media’ these days. It is often used derogatorily by President Trump to indicate those news channels and publications that do not support him. It is not the job of any media outlet to support any president; rather the constant questioning is a necessary means of checks and balances. Without these in place, the public would be un- or wrongly informed.

Yet sometimes in an effort to be neutral, the mainstream media gets it wrong.

Yet sometimes in an effort to be neutral, the mainstream media gets it wrong. The current hot topic – Russia’s alleged hacking of last November’s US election – is a case in point. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Homeland Security, in a joint statement said: “The U.S. Intelligence Community is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from U.S. persons and institutions, including from U.S. political organizations. . . . These thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the U.S. election process.”

Whenever a network correspondent speaks about the hacking and how the investigation is ongoing and how there can now be little doubt that the election was hacked, they quickly blurt out “But not in such a way as to change the outcome”. They get that in so fast that it sometimes sounds as if they are saying the two things at once. Often they even lead with the statement that the election was clean, then go on to explain how it was hacked. To my ears it just does not ring true.

I believe that in truth they do, quite understandably, want to take some people’s guns away: those who have criminal records, those deemed mentally unfit, ideally those who have not shown that they are capable of safely handling a gun.

It reminds me of when these same media outlets talk about gun control. Just as they have finished illustrating the common sense of background checks, comes the disclaimer “Of course I don’t want to take anyone’s guns away. We have a Second Amendment’. I believe that in truth they do, quite understandably, want to take some people’s guns away: those who have criminal records, those deemed mentally unfit, ideally those who have not shown that they are capable of safely handling a gun (you have to pass a test to get a driver’s license, but anyone can obtain and use a gun).

So if I follow that logic, should I assume that many reporters and analysts, while discussing the hacking are really wanting to say “Anything is possible, the outcome of the election has been placed in serious doubt given the vast amount of Russian hacking”?

Another Mass Shooting; Another Call For More Guns

“Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”

This oft cited Albert Einstein quotation has been running through my mind as I watch the television news coverage of the stunning mass killing at Orlando’s Pulse Club.

Sitting here north of the border and seeing mass shooting after mass shooting followed by calls for more, not fewer guns is nothing short of astounding. We all knew it would be stated, most people knew who would say it, and sure enough within days if not hours of the murder of 49 innocent victims by a lunatic with an assault rifle there it was. Presumptive GOP candidate Donald J. Trump stated that more guns would have reduced the number of fatalities in the Pulse Club.

I can’t conceive of how a madman opening fire with an assault rifle on a room full of people innocently dancing and socializing could be made worse other than by having several additional guns in the hands of panicking club goers

“If you had some guns in that club the night that this took place, if you had guns on the other side, you wouldn’t have had the tragedy that you had,” Trump said in a CNN interview. Yesterday he reaffirmed his position pointing out that if club patrons had ‘guns on their hips’ there would still have been deaths, but not the ‘carnage’ that took place.

I can’t conceive of how a madman opening fire with an assault rifle on a room full of people innocently dancing and socializing could be made worse other than by having several additional guns in the hands of panicking club goers. The first step to reducing and ideally eliminating these atrocities requires fewer not more guns.

Pro-gun commentators are fond of trotting out the tired old ‘if guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns’ cliche and ‘the best way to deal with a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun’. But what if the bad guy was unable to get a gun?

Until such time as guns are reined in, controls placed on their purchase and use, and most importantly a sea change in the current gun culture that exists in the United States I fear repeats of the Pulse Club and Sandy Hook shootings are inevitable.

GOP Convention and Guns

Guns

It has been said and written countless times: this US political season is unprecedented. Just when you think the race for Republican Party presidential candidate cannot get any stranger, it does. Usually these twists revolve around something one of those vying for the candidacy has said or written. Mud slung at an opponent’s wife or dirt dug up from the past. Good strong character traits not exactly showing the potential candidates in a presidential light.

Just when you think the race for Republican Party presidential candidate cannot get any stranger, it does.

But today it was the delegates and convention attendees who took a turn spotlighting the asininity of the current GOP.  With the potentiality of a hotly contested ‘brokered’ convention on the horizon for Cleveland next July, one that is sure to get both hackles and dander up, a proverbial powder keg, some 45,000 people have signed an online petition calling for guns to be allowed into the convention site.

The petition signatories state that as the GOP is against gun-free zones in general, to determine the party’s convention site gun-free flies in the face of party policy.

Excuse me for chortling, but if I have this right, a substantial number of Republicans want to be permitted to bring firearms to a gathering of fellow Republicans, one that could very well erupt into a knock-down-drag-out fight. One that will be held in a great big concrete and steel building. A convention that could turn very ugly. Seems to me just the type of environment you would normally not want to be exacerbated by armed attendees. However as a left-leaning liberal Canadian, the thought of a bunch of right-wingers inside a huge arena shooting at each other over disagreements as to which candidate is wackier would be must see TV. Talk about fish in a barrel.

If watching the GOP implode on a daily basis was not fulfilling enough, the possibility of an armed standoff at the convention is too much to ask for.

Those police forces charged with the security of convention goers and the general public maintain that a perimeter will be set up some distance from the Quicken Loans Arena to ensure no guns get into the convention.

“Only authorized law enforcement personnel working in conjunction with the Secret Service for a particular event may carry a firearm inside of the protected site,” the Secret Service said.

If watching the GOP implode on a daily basis was not fulfilling enough, the possibility of an armed standoff at the convention is too much to ask for.

The whole world is watching!

No Lame Duck, Obama Goes After Gun Lobby

Kevin Lamarque / Reuters

Kevin Lamarque / Reuters

Today, the first Monday of the new year, President Barack Obama, back from a vacation in Hawaii, begins his last year in office by illustrating he has no intention of spending the next twelve months as a lame duck. The President will meet with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss options for potential executive actions that would curb the selling of guns without adequate background checks.

As is usually the case when any suggestion is made that the gun acquisition process should be made more stringent, those who make up the gun lobby are speaking out against the action.

As is usually the case when any suggestion is made that the gun acquisition process should be made more stringent, those who make up the gun lobby are speaking out against the action. Claiming that such a move would defy the concept of ‘government of the people by the people for the people’ given similar measures have not passed congress, the gun people cry foul. I suspect the alleged miscarriage of democracy would not irk them quite as much if they were in agreement with the potential outcome. The president was elected ‘by the people’ and has at his disposal the ability to exercise executive actions. Seems democratic to me.

In a year end address Obama stated  “The gun lobby is loud and well organized in its defense of effortlessly available guns for anyone. The rest of us are going to have to be just as passionate and well organized in our defense of our kids. That’s the work of citizenship — to stand up and fight for the change that we seek.”

What struck me most about Obama’s statement was the use of the phrase ‘the rest of us’. Clearly defining the gun control debate as an ‘us/them’ dichotomy. For the first time that I can recall, a president has announced his intention to try to fix the deadly problem of guns even if it annoys some. Flying in the face of the gun enthusiasts rather than trying to curry favor with them. It looks as though this last year of Obama’s time in office is going to be anything but lame duck in nature.

Regardless of whether this number is trending up or down, the fact that so many incidents occur seems to indicate action is needed to limit access to guns.

I think for many Canadians the U.S. love affair with guns is somewhat baffling. Statistics show great numbers of Americans are killed or wounded by guns every year. Regardless of whether this number is trending up or down, the fact that so many incidents occur seems to indicate action is needed to limit access to guns. But no. Often the loudest response is, astonishingly,  that more guns are needed; guns for teachers, guns for health clinic receptionists, guns for students. Essentially a return to the days of the Wild West.

Political gamesmanship be damned; Obama seems determined to leave his mark on American society before his departure. Bravo!

Guns and Mental Illness; Which to Control

Obama_Oregon

America’s love affair with guns baffles me. Once again the United States was the scene of a mass killing. Last week a man killed nine innocent people and injured nine more at a college in a small Oregon town. In the close-knit community essentially all were touched personally by the tragedy. Lives snuffed out; some just getting going, others in their prime, by one man with many guns.

When it comes to guns and gun control, Americans tend to shoot themselves in the foot. If only that was the extent of the damage.

President Obama addressed the incident on television, giving Americans a piece of his mind. He is fed up and angry with these horrific events that happen so often, fourteen during his time in office – so far. It was evident that Obama, as a two-term president, was not pandering to voters, even if he did state that politicizing this shooting may be of benefit. Earlier in his term he may have been more concerned with presenting a balanced reaction, not offending the gun lobby..

But those days appear to be over. Obama’s tone was similar to a principal at a general assembly reading the riot act to a student body that insists on undertaking dangerous and asinine acts.

Republican Jeb Bush took some flak for adopting a ho-hum approach, saying that these things happen. Sadly he was correct. But that does not mean they should be tolerated.

Unlike their counterparts in the  US, most police chiefs in Canada are in favour of strict gun control. It’s a matter of keeping their men and women safe.

As an armchair sociologist observing things from across the border, the gun culture is one entity that never ceases to amaze me. I’m not referring to the combat-clad-assault-rifle-toting wackos. I mean the average citizen, husband or wife, son or daughter, educated or not, student or professional, maybe religious, maybe not, who has a gun or guns. Why? It is inconceivable to me.

There was an episode of the sitcom Frasier in which the two Crane brothers throw their public support behind a candidate for office. He appears to be all they could ask for in a representative until he casually, just in passing, mentions that he had once been abducted by aliens. The brothers are struck dumb. This cognitive dissonance is akin to what I experience when I encounter pleasant, sane, evidently intelligent people who then mention their guns.

Some say it is a matter of personal protection. Isn’t that what trained police officers are for? Unlike their counterparts in the  US, most police chiefs in Canada are in favour of strict gun control. It’s a matter of keeping their men and women safe.

For instance Chief William Blair of the Toronto Police Service said regarding gun control and the cessation of a national gun registry: “We’ve seen a fairly significant decline in the number of firearms seized by my firearms unit this year because the information that they once relied on isn’t available to them. If someone was prohibited from possessing firearms and they had firearms registered to them, we would go and get them. Now we have no idea.”

NO_Group_Walk_SignWithout fail whenever one of these awful shootings takes place the topic of mental illness is brought up to explain the shooting. In an ideal world mental illness – in fact all illness – could and would be eradicated, but we do not live in that world. Mental illness cannot be removed from the equation, but guns can. Would it not make sense, in a society where mental illness is difficult to control, to limit the availability of guns in everyone’s interest?

In what appears to be an example of the inmates running the asylum, there are areas in various US cities into which police are loath to go. Huh? In New Orleans, after a recent rise in armed robberies, citizens in the area adjacent to the French Quarter have posted signs encouraging visitors and locals alike to walk in large groups. This is not some small enclave in a backwater third-world country, this is The Big Easy, home to the Saints, great music and food.

When it comes to guns and gun control, Americans tend to shoot themselves in the foot. If only that was the extent of the damage.

Exit Piers Morgan; Enter Don Lemon?

Don Lemon

cbc.ca

Last night after just three years in the host’s seat Piers Morgan signed-off for the last time. He ended his stint as Larry King’s replacement in the coveted nine o’clock time slot on CNN by revisiting his crusade for tougher gun control laws.

Unfortunately Morgan never really made an impact with viewers and was consistently a ratings loser. Even if I agree with his gun control comments, they often degenerated into rants, showing his frustration with, and inability to understand, American’s love of guns.

The fact that he carried out these harsh criticisms of a US cultural mainstay in his British accent may have irked more viewers than it pleased; Americans don’t like to be told what to do, and certainly not by a “foreigner”.

He’s paid his dues, has shown he can be controversial, and handle it, he’s not a “foreigner”, he’s a member of a visible minority who is also openly gay, and he’s both charming and versatile.

In my opinion Morgan was never the person for the post, not that he isn’t very intelligent and not that he didn’t do an admirable job, but for the very reasons outlined above. It was a matter of the proverbial square peg in a round hole.

But now the question is who will replace Morgan: Jake Tapper, Michael Smerconish, Bill Weir and Don Lemon are all being considered according to the Huffington Post. I might add Chris Cuomo to that list; as I’ve written, things don’t seem to be working well on New Day, his current home.

For my money the next nightly host on CNN’s nine o’clock show should be Don Lemmon. He’s paid his dues, has shown he can be controversial, and handle it, he’s not a “foreigner”, he’s a member of a visible minority who is also openly gay, and he’s both charming and versatile. He can handle a wide range of topics, from breaking news to Hollywood entertainment, race relations to politics.  It’s time.

Of course CNN could give all of them a week or two in the host’s seat and let the viewers decide, call it CNN Idol!

Not that the other gentlemen aren’t capable journalists – sadly no women are being considered according to the HuffPost piece – but in my opinion Lemon is just a wee bit better.

Of course CNN could give all of them a week or two in the host’s seat and let the viewers decide, call it CNN Idol!
