No one seems to be talking about the violent video games or other electronic violence that is going on in many people’s heads, especially the young. Add vampire, zombie, werewolf, cartoons on Saturday morning and just your normal run of the mill violence in movies and on TV — our world is permeated with violence and killing.

I am not arguing against gun control, but I think we are missing a huge underlying problem. You think the gun industry is huge and employs many, consider the above industries. No one is talking about the export of weapons globally by the USofA.

Major money, major employment, major campaign money.

The NRA might be a welcome target for some.
