What's the difference between now and 1980? There are exponentially increasing instances of mass violence, yet the guns we have today are no more lethal than what was around back then. The difference is the widespread hate for each other that we are exposed to every day and that so many of us are buying. We make our neighbors our enemies because we vote for a different candidate. We don't listen to each other. We don't care what they have to say. All we know is that we hate them and they are our enemies. You want a solution? Regulate them or stop purchasing their evil product.
