  •  Perspective: Mass shooting kill about 20 people/yr (0+ / 0-)

    on average.

    Which is about the same as die of bubonic plague in the American Southwest.

    A greater toleration of rattlesnakes would reduce number prairie dogs, and therefore (maybe) the number of cases of plague.

    However, nearly 200 people a year die of snake bite already.  More snakes, more bites ... it just stands to reason.

    But ...  "any stick will beat a dog" as my peasant ancestors used to say.  If the country will rally around 20 dead middle class beautiful innocent children and write some safe and sane gun control legislation ... notably something that keeps straw buyers in rural states  from sending handguns to more urban ones -- that's not a bad thing.

    And it will make some very unappealing people very very upset.

    (I'm still going to miss American Guns on cable TV.)
