The political argument over gun control has erupted again after the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, that left 19 children and two teachers dead. It’s the same argument that erupts after every mass shooting. But this time, on Capitol Hill at least, it seems more muted, and the measures under consideration are more limited than in the past.

    The passionate Senator from Connecticut wouldn’t give the good Senator from South Carolina the time of day on his police/gun reform efforts. A pox on the ‘passionate’ and ‘compassionate’ Left.

    A couple of observations: First -America does not have  gun violence problem, America has a violence problem. A gun was just a tool that is often usec but by far is not the only tool used for violence in America(SUV at Chrismas Parade ring a bell?). Second – magaxzine capacity is largely irrelevant. An empty magazine is quickly and easily exchanged for a full one. Address the root problem – violence and a culture of violence in some parts of the country.

    That’s exactly right. If you throw out a tiny amount of counties that are either in notorious urban areas or dominated by Scotch-Irish heritage, we have less violence than Europe.
