Losing control

We just saw three school shootings in a week (two of them on the same day) and one of them was a mass shooting. So far this year, there have been 294 mass shootings in the U.S. according to the Washington Post. Yet, guns don't kill people, abortions do, so let's make them harder for women to get.

Guns are an American right so let's not limit access to them — but education and healthcare aren't, so we should limit access to both of those things as much as possible. My argument isn't to ban guns, but to at least address the issue in order to address the the inefficient laws already on the books. My gut feeling is that if gays, immigrants and women were lobbying to have more access to guns there would already be a law banning firearms.

Maybe we could employ some sort of qualifications in order to buy a gun, like being 18 years old to purchase tobacco or 21 for alcohol. How about if a guy is an anti-social, sexually frustrated white male they should NOT be allowed to buy a gun, for starters anyway.

Editor’s note: A stray apostrophe was added to this cartoon thanks to an eagle-eyed reader.
