The Deadly Compromise by Jonah Peretti

Jonah writes a very realistic and unfortunately true observation about the gun situation in America in light of the Virgina Tech shooting.


American gun policy is a deadly compromise.

Pro-gun advocates explain that the Virginia Tech killer would have been stopped in his tracks if students and teachers were carrying concealed weapons. This is absolutely correct -- it is obviously much harder to kill people who are armed.

Meanwhile, gun control advocates explain that those murders would never have happened if the killer could not get guns in the first place.

The is also completely correct -- just look at the murder rate in Asia and Europe to see how limiting access to guns reduces violent crime.

Both sides are right, but they want to live in different worlds. continued...


"Deadly Compromise" is right on the mark in its description of our climate. With our great beacon of civilization emanating supreme moral authority to the darkness of the rest of humanity, it is unimaginable that not only do these NRA troglodyte types think that every human being should carry a device designed specifically to kill other human beings, but that they consistently make wins to make it that much closer to happening. Yee Haw!
