Overwhelmingly huge percentages of the American people support various proposals for reducing gun violence (background checks, denying guns to domestic violence abusers, banning assault weapons, etc.).
Several nationwide, statewide and local groups keep promoting these worthy proposals. I support them.
But they are OVERLOOKING THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM!
The U.S.’s VIOLENT, MILITARISTIC FOREIGN POLICY assumes that shooting people solves problems! Our federal government spends BILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS to promote that mistaken notion. The federal government SETS A BAD EXAMPLE for ordinary people who follow the government’s bad example that SHOOTING PEOPLE would solve their problems!
If the American people REALLY want to stop gun violence, WE ABSOLUTELY MUST ORGANIZE A GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT to replace our extremely violent foreign policy with a TRULY NONVIOLENT foreign policy!
