What explains school shootings and other mass shootings—the ones that are real?
The gun control lobby blames "gun violence." Gun violence is a non-sensical term. It attributes action and intent to an inanimate physical object as if the gun decides to kill people and moves around on its own pulling its own trigger. Clearly there is no such thing as gun violence. The reliance on such a nonsense term makes a person wonder what the real agenda is of gun control advocates.
People commit violence with guns, just as they do with bombs, Molotov cocktails, knives, baseball bats, tasers, rocks, slingshots, chainsaws, bows and arrows, cars, trucks, fists, and so on. How silly would you sound if you described American Indians' use of bows and arrows as "bow and arrow violence" or refered to Jack-the-Ripper as "knife violence."
Nevertheless, the nonsense term has been used by gun control advocates for so many years that people born to its use don't realize its absurdity. Students at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida told the media that they "have had enough of gun violence."
