4 police officers murdered in Oakland. 13 innocents murdered in a Federal INS building in Binghamton, NY. Today, 3 police officers murdered in cold blood in Pittsburgh.
What the heck is going on?
Forget your politics for a moment. Gun Rights, Gun Control...
Maybe, just maybe... we are starting to see people crack under the pressure of mean spirited policies (the U.S. has the greatest percentage of its population in prison in the history of the world): taxes, lack of opportunity, taxes, government threats of regulation, taxes, Law Enforcement parading around dressed like they are about to invade Poland, taxes... throw in 300 million guns (I own several guns, and I hunt and I fish... for a New Yorker, well, go figure) running around our society... and Viola! Mayhem.
Maybe, just maybe, our society, led by our Federal, State, and Local GOVERNMENTS could try to be a little "kinder and gentler".
I have spent the last couple of weeks filing this paperwork for my companies with the various states, and that tax form for the Feds, and this form and that form and this and that.... I am ready to shoot myself...
My heart goes out to the families of the victims, and the to the victims themselves.
Maybe the answer is NOT another government crackdown.
