A meditation on guns
Seattle police officials Tuesday told the City Council that the outbreak of violence through Memorial Day weekend and since the beginning of the year has more to do with guns than with gangs.Randy B. writes:
I suspect that in the absence of guns most of these gangsters would have taken upstanding positions in society as, say, doctors, lawyers, engineers, pilots, CEO’s, dentists, astronauts, and so on. In June of 2001 we removed TV and cable from our home. In the years since then, the only TV I get is in hotels while traveling, but I am amazed at how many black people have risen to positions of authority in spite of the fact some of them came up within proximity of firearms. What I learn from TV is that all white people are dullards, societal dregs, violent underachievers, or at best horrible parents, while blacks and Latinos are the deep thinkers, power brokers, and authority figures with hearts of gold.
