Problem Solved



Having written, in my Sunday newspaper column, about our puzzling acceptance of gun violence in this country, I've heard from a few people pointing out that gun violence is actually down over the past few years. So, they're implying, we don't need to do anything. It's all good.

In other words, according to them, we've reached the ideal level of gun violence. The perfect number of kids killing themselves or their siblings accidentally, the optimum amount of murders by firearm. Whatever the amount is, it's just right. We've hit the nail on the head. No need to attempt to keep even one more gun out of the hands of a psychotic or known criminal. Hey, even terrorists. I mean, because, you know, we've got it just right.

Makes sense to me.
