    and how right you are!

    Gun advocates are willing to talk about anything------but the guns---anything..................

    Blame it on---whomever----whatever.......but not the guns.

    Do not blame the easy access----and gross availability---- of guns----- in this country.

    Not ever.

    That bullshit argument--in plain english---means no responsibility taken-----no practical solutions provided---no realistic options offered------and----most of all----- no changes---of any kind---in current gun-policy---in this country.

    Nails the lid shut--on gun-advocacy current thinking.

    There is no one in the world that does not suffer---- at some point in their lives---- from-----breakdown----- depression--- --trauma----stress----insomnia-----anger-----loss of self esteem....................possible mini strokes---you name it-----all of it  is part of the human condition.

    "If it were up to me I'd take away the guns."

    It is the guns--period.

    It---is---the----guns.

    "If it were up to me, I'd take away the guns."--Cheryl Wheeler

      1.) guns
      2.) mental health
      3.) drug laws

      These are the most likely keys, all of them, to stopping a terrible situation of violence in the U.S. -- there may be other factors which I've not included, but these are all undeniably part of the bigger picture of gun violence in the U.S.
