News: Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has proposed a measure that would ban gun shops from nearly anywhere in the city, and require gun sales to be videotaped.
Comment: Why not? Next, let’s videotape every alcohol sale. Then, when some drunk driver kills an innocent family, at least we’ll know who they are!
Video is not the answer. Prevention is. And prevention begins with reliable access to mental health facilities, and citizen training to recognize and act on the “warning signs” of unstable individuals.
Don’t demonize the vast majority of responsible gun owners based on the maniacal (and preventable!) actions of the few.
