All the conversations and op-eds and breast-beating about the recent
slaughter in Aurora, Colo., ignores the monster behind all these
tragedies. Maniacs, screwed-up kids, violent and sick people commit
these atrocities, which violate the social contract, and the people with
the power to do something about it ignore the source of these events —
weapons of destruction in the hands of the people who bring tragedies to
their fellow citizens.
The citizens are in agreement we need gun controls; their representatives need to be pushed to take reasonable action. Until America and its politicians confront the monster in the political room, these horrors will be repeated.
