Good news ladies and gentlemen. The Independent Journal Review posted an article detailing how Americans are Getting Tired of Gun Control Pushes.
Support for more gun control is waning across all political parties, including liberals and democrats. This should be common sense, gun control does not reduce violent crime. Criminals do not care about laws. Society should take the people who mental problems and ensure they receive help.
Democrats (from 79% to 71%)
Liberals (from 75% to 67%)
Women (from 69% 55%)
Republicans (from 39% to 29%)
If democrats and liberals want to reduce violent crime:
1. Open community colleges in low income housing areas. Make attendance mandatory for anyone living in public housing. Provide people on welfare with a clear path out of poverty. Democrats however would rather keep people in poverty than provide them with a path out of poverty. As long as people are poor and dependent on the government, they will continue to vote democrat.
When people lose hope of bettering themselves, they figure they have nothing to lose. So what if they go out in a rain of gunfire, at least they get their name in the news.
We have to break the cycle of families spending generations in the welfare line.
2. Make mental health services free to the public, regardless of income levels. We as a society need to remove the stigma from mental health. If someone has a problem, society as a whole needs to address said problem.
In a capitalist society we are taught we either sink or swim. You either work and provide for yourself, or you sink into poverty.
Mental illness and poverty are like oil and water, they do not go well with each other. Those who need the help the most are unable to afford it.
3. End school bullying. Establish a national awareness program to end bullying.
The path is clear, we either address mental health and poverty, or we continue to deal with shootings like Sandy hook and Aurora Colorado.
The war on guns is pretty much over, except the crying that is.
