More Gun Laws Needed it Seems,
After MI School Murders

Maybe time really is a flat circle, because here we are again. Another broken kid — who had raised red flags and alarmed everyone around him — got his hands on a gun and opened fire in his school, killing and wounding people that his sad, damaged psyche had concluded had somehow wronged him.

As if on cue, all of the same familiar faces took the opportunity to blame gun rights supporters — including, of course the NRA — and claim that the Oxford High School shooting is the latest evidence that America needs more gun control laws to stop horrors such as these from happening.

"Americans are sick and tired of living in a country where gun violence is a reality." As parents mourn the victims of the Oxford High School shooting, @KrisB_Brown talks to @KatyTurNBC about gun control legislation in the US.

It's obvious, right? All we need are more laws passed by more courageous legislators to keep the Adam Lanzas, Nikolas Cruzes and Ethan Crumbleys of the world from doing the terrible things that they do. Then we can all sleep soundly.

That is, of course, a lie. .....

"Literally none of the additional laws that the usual suspects call for after a shooting like the one in Michigan would have done anything to prevent it. Not universal background checks, not banning "ghost guns," not "red flag" laws, or regulating pistol braces out of existence."
