20. No reason why we can't do both.

I think you've missed the point of my previous post.

I'm not talking about arguing for taking guns away. We've been doing that for fifty years already and haven't gotten anywhere with it.

I'm talking about let's have a real fact based conversation about crime and risk in this country including terrorism, let's call out fear-mongering, and let's reality check ourselves when we're engaging in hyperbolic speculation about government abuse of power.

All of that just feeds into a loop where we all feel more and more afraid of each other when we should be working on the real problems like dealing with climate change and creating an equitable society that respects human dignity in an economy where more and more work is automated and there is less demand for unskilled labour.

Republican win by using racism and fear to split us apart and that same racism and fear is feeding the gun crisis.
