Congratulations to John Keene for supporting the language inflation game. I totally agree that unneeded deaths are a catastrophe. Consequently, Keene must be a strong supporter of gun control reform, especially eliminating the gun show background check loophole, banning high capacity clips and assault rifles, etc.
Rifles for hunters, military weapons for police and military — i.e. a well regulated militia — not gun manufacturers, are getting rich off nuts and thugs possessing dangerous anti-human weapons. This could begin to stop around 20,000 people being killed every year in America, including students in schools, etc.
Surely that’s a more efficient way to prevent needless deaths than whatever militaristic embassy solutions certain anti-Obama people seem to envision. While we’re at it, lets get rid of capital punishment, crack down even more severely on drunken (and otherwise dangerous) driving, and support programs that seek to reduce homelessness and poverty.
All of these things would eliminate needless deaths and make us a better people to boot.
