In the wake of the Virginia Tech shootings, we see it again: the divide between the gun lobby who feels the kids should have had their own guns and been able to shoot back, and everyone else, who thinks that guns have no place in a school (or a home or a car). How many do you really want to see dead, with four or five kids shooting in a panic? You can’t really believe MORE guns would have helped the situation? You’re an ED doc, for heaven’s sake!
I routinely link to bloggers whose views on lots of things I do not share. But for me today, this is too much. Bye, Scalpel.
Undeleted due to the fact that, whatever we happen to disagree on, Scalpel is a quality writer with quality arguments. Knee-jerk deletion undone.
The meaning of “two solitudes” comes from the experience of the English and French communities in Montreal, who, though living side-by-side, can never connect, never understand one another. I think it is applicable in the gun control argument.
