Mass violence?

We are, and ought to be, horrified at the loss of almost 30 lives in last week’s shooting. It matters not that children are safer in school than in their parents’ car on the way to school. We (the philosopher kings) must do something! “Never let a good crisis go to waste!”

Reminds us of the massive squandering of resources, loss of freedom, and zero effect on safety of the TSA in the years since 9/11, doesn’t it.

But here’s a suggestion in the spirit of actually constructive things that the government could do to greatly reduce the level of violence in the contemporary USA: repeal all the drug laws!
