As Mayor Barrett noted this morning prior to our regional gun violence meeting, cops don't carry large capacity magazines, used in mass shootings. We also don't need the bad guys armed with military style weapons either. The solution is not more guns or more people with guns, the answer is fewer guns and banning certain kinds of weapons and equipment. Otherwise we escalate the violence, we don't reduce it or eliminate mass shootings.
Other countries HAVE eliminated mass shootings. We can too. We are better than where we are with gun violence. Our gun culture is a massive FAIL. The states with the fewest guns and the most strict gun regulations have the least gun violence and the least gun crime.
We have a problem; the solution is NOT more guns.
