The events of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and the shootings all over the US that have followed over the last 3 days have sparked a huge uptrend in talks about Gun Violence and what to do to prevent it and protect against it. While I agree that there are certain things that need to be done. Some parents and companies are going overboard. Now, I would negligent if I didn’t point out this is America, Capitalism reigns here. Companies will produce and market anything that there is even the slightest demand for. It is the nature of the system. That’s not to say its right, it however is how it works.

I have already talked about the shooting in Newtown Connecticut with a bit of depth, This is a follow-up to that article and the repercussions that are taking place across the country because of that shooting. The news has been filled since last Friday with talks about the shooting in Connecticut. Since then their have been 5 more shootings across the US on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Amongst these shootings is one at a mall, stopped by a man with a concealed carry permit, sadly not before at least 1 person died. Another incident was at a church outside of Atlanta Georgia. One took place in a hospital in Birmingham Alabama. The death toll in the last week from gun violence is now more than 35 lives taken.

If you are one of those people posting about how “it has nothing to do with guns”, “this wouldn’t happen if we had more guns”, or “gun control caused this shooting” while at the same time posting “my thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the Newtown shooting” or something similar. This is aimed heavily at you and for the rest of the people this is meant to serve as an informational post. Please read this with an open mind. The suggestions in the post are easy to understand and fairly easily implemented.
