Politicians won’t let a good tragedy go to waste:
This is how our modern government works: cause trouble, create a tragedy, then blame private individuals. Government created a housing bubble, which burst around 2007, and promptly blamed greedy bankers. Government ordered the military to stand down in Benghazi and an ambassador was killed, and they blamed a private film on Islam. Now, after denying schools the ability to secure themselves and mass shootings continue to occur, they blame gun ownership. It is tyranny in plain sight, which they are using to further their totalitarian policies.
