I think some sort of national service should be mandated for citizenship in this country. I don't propose to have all the details worked out in my head but I think what the Israeli's do is a good start. Those able bodied, MALE AND FEMALE, should have to do some sort of military service and learn to use a weapon properly. Those opposed can serve in other ways, like FIRE, EMS, Law Enforcement, Corrections officers, Border Patrol, TSA agents, etc. . It could stem the tide of some of our employment problems by mandating some sort of 3-4 year service to the country. Just some thoughts.
China has some of the toughest laws on Gun Control in the world. It wasn't long ago that a knife wielding citizen killed 20+ young kids in their schools. There have been at least two other knife wielding attacks there as well.
You take away the guns, the problem remains.
So if you take away the knives….what are we gonna cut our steak with then?
I appreciate the wink Ben. I missed no point, just wanted to get people thinking and talking about it.
