Again, mass shootings do not spontaneously occur. Human agency is THE necessary catalyst. Secondly, after acknowledging that our society is saturated in firearms, you posit ending firearms sales as tactic.Like I said- your solution(s), while admirable, are a pipe dream.
While clever, your analogy about drownings aren't the same a say, mass shootings. I don't read much, or anything I recall on murder by drowning.
That word 'intent' comes to mind again, doesn't it?
1) The guns are ALREADY there. Short of government confiscation, your solution is a non-sequitur.
2) Halting sales is unconstitutional. You would be rendering a guaranteed, enumerated constitutional right a “desert” (hence the analogy). You don’t end the acts of bad guys by removing resources and rights of good guys (again, desertification of a fertile thing).
3) Human devaluation of life is clearly THE problem. We don’t destroy what we value, right? Whether a person is nuts, evil, or both - this is what needs addressing…and what nearly always goes unmentioned.
