I know in this country (USA) that gun violence is a big issue but it is terrible how it is used to deceive and manipulate the masses for political gain and sometimes just pure virtue signalling. Mass shootings of course are terrible tragedies but are not the gun issue that should be brought up when talking about legislation. According to the Washington Post, the total death toll from mass shootings is just over 1,200 people. This is data collected since the 1960's and is continuously updated. It took almost 60 years to reach 1,200. Chicago reached that number in murders in just over 2 years, the past 2 years. God only knows the total death toll in Chicago from the past 60 years from gun violence. So call me crazy but how is adding more legislation and restrictions to buying a firearm for law abiding citizens going to protect us from those who don't care about those restrictions especially in cites like Chicago that already have the strictest gun laws in the country?They say things like this "... our parent company joined other business leaders to call on policymakers to enact bi-partisan legislation to address this epidemic." But what does that even mean? Sounds like they're trying to appease people to make sure they don't lose money because of controversies. I think the only solution to mass shootings is a shift in how we treat each other, through individual, community, corporations, and government ways of thinking and practice. That's asking a lot I know and I don't think it will be possible sadly. No laws or policies are going to stop somebody from doing something as bad as a mass shooting, that has to come from themselves and the people around them. If the person feels hopeless and lost no law is going to fix that. You would have way more success in ridding this country of mass shootings and maybe even gun violence as a whole if there was more focus on treating mental health instead of gun legislation. Get to the source and don't blame the object used.
