School shootings on the rise

There have been eleven or twelve school shootings so far this year and these are now treated as normal occurrences. There are also moves being made in certain states to arm teachers. These occurrences are flying under the radar because of the Trump Circus in Washington.

Another one today in LA though fortunately no one dead.

Oversupply of a readibly available hazardous commodity combined with careless custodianship and an immature irrational attitude of fanciful entitlement.

How can there be too many assholes since everyone has one?

Pretty much, plus a paucity of common sense.

There are more folks that want firearms than need them, reasons range from necessity thru sensible to irrational.
Since they've long been a for-profit commodity, rather than tools with purpose, promotion of oversupply thru politics was inevitable.

Most of us use motorized vehicles far more frequently than our firearms, yet we do fine with no clamoring for legislation guaranteeing a right to use this, for many of us, necessity. Think about that.
