I had to give myself a time out before posting this. After some hours of deliberation and deferment, I feel I'm doing this in good faith, with good intentions.
So what's the real answer? Who do we really blame? Should we actually be blaming anyone?
Let's say for a moment that hypothetically there was a man who walked into a school and killed 12 children in the first unprecedented school massacre in the country.
Let's also say that the man used just two revolvers with speed loaders, which he obtained illegally.
Also we shall say that gun control is rather strict, but firearm deaths are twice as high as another hypothetical country, and actual firearm homicides are five times that of the other country.
Let's say that there was grief around the world for this country.
Who's at fault? Why did this happen when it did? Shall we blame the people of this country for not doing enough to protect its children? Or is it the fault of the shooter.
It's the fault of the shooter, isn't it?
So exactly at what point do we gain the right to blame someone other than the one who actually committed the crime?
I want to know.
