The focus on guns rather than the sick perpetrator, on law makers rather than complicit radical cultural leaders is lame. It speaks to the intelligence of reporters today.

If guns were automobiles, and, terrorist-inclined shooters were the drivers of those automobiles, I bet these armchair philosophers would have taken a different stance in the debate.

“Lax gun laws in the U.S. are hurting the country’s influence abroad” is wishful thinking on the podcast writer’s part. Most Americans are far smarter than that. Try making the same argument against airplane manufacturers when German Flight 9525 crashed, killing 144 passengers and six flight crew due to a deranged pilot. Try making the same argument against airplane manufacturers when Metro Jet 9268 had a bomb aboard killing 224 aboard. The problem isn’t the tool (airplanes or guns); rather, the problem is the terrorist. I guess you didn’t get the memo.
