The shooting of two journalists in Virginia makes it even more urgent

The shooting of two journalists in Virginia makes it even more urgent. It’s time we shot down the gun lobby. The fact that weapons are so readily available means that they are being used to kill innocent people. It means that the mentally ill and the disaffected can easily lay hands on weapons. It means that children are at risk in schools and citizens in streets. Let’s face it it has nothing to do with the right to carry guns. It is all about profit for the gun manufacturers. Guns kill and injure. The more people that carry them the more risk there is of shootouts. If your house is robbed and you have a gun it is more likely that the robber will too and someone is going to be shot, probably you for threatening that robber. Yes we live in a dangerous society but it would be far less dangerous if nobody at all carried guns. It’s time common sense prevailed and guns were only used by soldiers.
