You're a smart fellow, why do you think this is???  Simple, lawmakers are vested in the system. Am I wrong?  

Usually. Anytime a person needs 3 question marks to ask a question is a great tell. Yes, you are wrong. Not at the level of the surface but below. Our problem is that as a society is that we create criminals to incarcerate and that we give the incarcerators a profit motive. It is just that simple.

No Sir. But, the way we handle criminals is ridiculous. The number incarcerated for "soft" crimes is too high, the time for hard crimes is too short and the tansition from criminal to society is retarded. 

But that is just one man's opinion.

Particularly that third one

Big question for societies is if they want to see time in jail as punishment or as potential rehabilitation. Should we focus on misery or recidivism.

I think it says something about how strong we are as a society which we choose. The stronger we are, the more we want to re-integrate.

Seems to be 3 dead and 4 injured altogether

"We're calling on all of our residents to take a stand against these hostile acts," Birmingham City Council President William Parker said in a statement. "We're going to continue to lift them up in our thoughts and prayers. 

That's it. Use your "take a stand shield" and your "thoughts and prayers" ammunition, Councilor!! Fuck me.

Just looking at this mornings headlines and my big take away was (shocker) GUNS AND ALCOHOL don't mix... 

"massive house parties and unauthorized concerts".  Ripe conditions, but hey what do I know?

If I'm going to a house party; do I really need to wonder if I should strap up? Cause if I do - not the party for me.

You don't have to wonder because if you are strapping on you are incapable of wondering. Either the NRA, Marjorie Taylor-Greene, Facebook or your Duck Dynasty buddies have already 'splained that it's no longer just a God Given right but now also a Constitutional right to pack some heat. So, Parteeee.....

You can only become the good guy with a gun if you carry it.
So, don't hesitate.;)

In order to believe the "good guy with a gun" trope it is necessary to indulge in some major statistical and intellectual contortions.  If it were true, you'd expect a lower homicides rate in states  with higher rates of legal (i.e. "good guy") gun ownership.  The opposite is true.

It's also necessary to avoid the bad guy getting the drop on you. The more "good guys with guns" there are the more bad guys will shoot first.

Are you talking about the child care and mental health systems? 

Which nonexistent wrinkle are you shooting at this time? Are we now supposed to be up in arms over republican inspired underfunded child care and mental health systems. Are these the failures that allowed two disturbed kids the opportunity to break into a house and find several guns, including an AK-47 and bags of ammunition, just laying around for fun?  Mind you, this weapons arsenal, is where two young girls live with their father.

Try this: You've just been appointed King of America. You have one year to reduce by 1/2 the numbers of deaths indisputably linked to both mental health problems and gun proliferation but you can only work on one of the two. And it's super serious for South Carolina because if you fail they are going to cancel both Hannity and Judge Judy. Which do you choose?
