I have this thought in light of the shooting at the Ramada last night in State College:
We always write that “thoughts and prayers” are with the victims. While prayers and thoughts are necessary, it’s pretty damned clear that they don’t provide a whole lot of protection. I am NOT advocating that guns be taken away from law abiding gun owners. What I am advocating is that the best technology minds in the country sit down and devise a way to keep guns out of the hands of someone who shouldn’t be handling them. I’m not smart enough to have my own plan, but if the great minds of this country can come up with some of the incredible inventions we’ve seen in our lifetimes, then surely they can figure something out that respects the rights of proper gun owners, while making things safer for everyone else.
