You Can't Stop the Insanity

You can take guns away from people but you can't stop the insanity. When I post about gun control in the US, I sometimes get email from Australia about a reduction in violence with stricter gun legislation since 1996. I find that mental ill people can always find ways to harm others. As we know, the world grows more dangerous every day - just look at unfolding events in Jerusalem and around the world.

Jerusalem Today

Funerals are being held in Gaza for 58 people killed on Monday when Israeli troops opened fire during Palestinian protests, in the deadliest day of violence there since a war in 2014. The burials coincide with the 70th anniversary of what Palestinians call the Nakba - a mass displacement of Palestinians after Israel's creation. Israel's military said it was preparing for further confrontations on Tuesday.
