I asked a great guy what his thoughts were regarding all these shootings and got a chuckle out of his response. It kinda wraps the whole thing up in a couple of sentences. The angst, disbelief and frustration of such seemingly random violence.
Arm everyone and let them shoot it out. Seems to be working OK for the gang leaders in Chicago. It was good enough in the Old Wild West and the Mobs in the Big Cities. Mike
