Wise Comment

A friend of mine posted a very wise comment, which I think is worth thinking on:
“We should be allowed weapons to defend ourselves from violent crimes when they happen.”
“No, we should examine why these crimes happen in the first place, and try to understand what leads to them so we can prevent them from happening.”

The answer is “yes”. It’s not an either/ or proposition. To say otherwise is a false dichotomy in the name of political expediency.
