Gun rage

Ben Carson suggested “Rush the killer.” Jeb Bush said, “Stuff happens.” The presidential wannabes found something to hang their hats on — mental health.

Gun rage is out of control.

Was the tragedy in Oregon an incident? No, it was cold-blooded murder. It’s easier to buy guns than cigarettes. Raise the tax on weapons and ban the sale of ammunition on assault weapons. People are jailed for possessing marijuana. Are they jailed for having illegal weapons?

I cry in frustration over the way the media are selling this to the public as an issue of mental health. Sorry guys, these are two different issues.
