I guess we should expect nothing more than bandaids from our government... because that's all they've ever done to solve real problems. Anything more than that would require them to stop campaigning and actually do something — and I'm not sure they're capable.

When I had the Kryptonite Lock account years ago, the operative promise was that it can deter bike thieves. The product did not automatically kill every last bike thief on the planet.
The only way you can completely eliminate gun violence is to globally render firearms inaccessible to every human on the planet. Even vacating the 2nd Amendment wouldn't solve the problem. The next best thing is some level of control. And if you've been paying attention, you've seen how the gun lobby, most Repugnicans, and even a handful of Democraps have torpedoed even a bandaid.
Have you got anything stronger — that would make it through both chambers, that is?
I used to be against term limits but I think Giz is right when he says that the anointed ones never stop campaigning. Term limits might be an answer to the problem. I also think that even if term limits aren't implemented, it's time to amend the Constitution so that presidents are elected for 6-yaer terms, as are senators, and representatives are elected for four year terms. Reps. in particular are always electioneering because no sooner is one election over than they have to gear up for the next . Two year terms may have made sense in the 18th century, but not today.

From what I gather from the chief is that this happens at these things. You got drunk crazy doped up bungies getting in each others faces. Most of the time it doesn't happen with this many people . Of course, it sure does help to fan the flames when the media is salivating over incidents like this when a gun is mention and they sure dd count every one especially the kids who got some scratches,
It's got all the great stuff to make a story. Of course it might help even more if a rich fat headed mayor gets into the fray clamoring for more restrictions that would absolutely no freakin good. Or a president gets weepy eyed on national news.
There are 10 kinds of people. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
