It's going to keep happening until they get the guns banned. This will be the rallying cry for the summer.

Appears to be single victim and likely a domestic violence issue. Not tyring to make the situation any less important. Less hotheads with guns would probably be as beneficial as less psycopaths with guns.

When I was younger I loved the Highlander movie. For those who haven't seen it, churches are sacred ground and the characters are sworn to a code that they can't fight there. I always thought hospitals should be sacred ground when it comes to violence. We help anyone we can without regard for the reason why they are injured. That should be respected by all.

I don’t see many people calling for all guns to be banned. Just better regulation and common sense steps to end the slaughter. The financial costs of gun violence in America are staggering. That is something that should be a rallying cry.

I found out the hard way that working in a hospital is not safe at all even in Scottsdale Arizona

Too many People can’t be trusted with guns. Definitely need many guns banned.

the same can be said about legalizing drugs. The ridiculous homeless situation shows people wouldn’t be able to handle that either.

Hate to agree with your second point but I want to be consistent. Your first point is spot on.
