6. the first people i want to have to surrender their guns, en masse


is perpetrators of domestic violence.
if there is a better indicator of a potential to kill someone than that, i dont know what it is or could be.

i know in illinois, you get convicted, or get an order of protection taken out against you, you lose the right to own a gun. but in few jurisdictions do they actually knock on your door and take them away.

i wonder sometimes what a world we would have if we stopped treating this as some understandable, personal act, and started treating it an attack on the foundation of society that it is. we hear that, the family is the cornerstone. then we treat what happens in the family like some isolated sphere in which we shouldnt "interfere".

beating a child should be the highest crime their is. beating your partner should be #2.

family family family we cry. then we turn our backs.
