Creator comments on Louisiana theater shooting
Apparently, gun control and improvements to mental health services cannot both happen at once. I’m not sure why, but that's just how it is.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) July 24, 2015
There has to be “the” problem, and any solution that doesn’t magically fix “the” problem all at once isn’t worth anything.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) July 24, 2015
The concept that mentally-ill people having easy access to guns could be two (or more!) problems that could each be addressed is crazy talk.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) July 24, 2015
What I want to know is if he thinks arguing for better education is sane talk. I just don't see why nobody complains about poor educational curriculum in public schools that could enable crazies like those to spawn.
I have to say, I like how Australia handles it. Hunters still have guns. Criminals find it very hard to get them.— Kurt Busiek (@KurtBusiek) July 24, 2015
But what about innocent civilians in urban areas?
Huh. Turns out guns do kill people. Easily.— Perazza (@Perazza) July 24, 2015
Umm, hasn't that been painfully obvious for centuries? What is the point here? To say only firearms are the problem and not mindsets?
Remember, there's no gun problem in America. Everything's fine. #Louisiana— Ron Marz (@ronmarz) July 24, 2015
Remember that according to men like Marz, gun-free zones aren't a problem.
These shootings make me think, the next time we're called an advanced country the word 'barely' should precede it.— Patch Zircher (@PatrickZircher) July 24, 2015
Can we even go two weeks without a lunatic with a gun making headlines?— Patch Zircher (@PatrickZircher) July 24, 2015
Can we go any length of time without hearing leftists blabbing on about gun control?
Everyone who excessively rants about politics into the social media void has a screw loose. Find some balance.— Patch Zircher (@PatrickZircher) July 24, 2015
Hey, that's a good point! Maybe he should tell his buddy above that. Sage advice.
There's a sign in this town 'The only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun'. I miss the No More Guns solution.— Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) July 24, 2015
I wonder why nobody, not even this man, cares about education.
I admit I find defenders of the status quo, re: guns, increasingly revolting. I lost my willingness to indulge them 9 mass shootings ago.— Joe Hill (@joe_hill) July 24, 2015
Out of curiosity, does he at least respect all the women and minorities who make up a big chunk of the buyers for guns? I'm sure he may realize a lot of the women who bought guns did so for self-defense. And on that note, I don't suppose he might at least be willing to argue that more women should learn karate for self-defense? All these cheapie complaints by these creators solely about guns are not helping. And isn't it weird that they're willing to comment on this incident, but none save but one ever commented on the shooting in Tennessee at a navy base a few weeks before?
