The trigger.

Our country has many problems, one of which is passivity. Things happen to us. We, as intelligent and psychologically complex individuals, have no control. So, as a result, we end up blaming inanimate objects. 

If we blame guns for the deaths of innocent people, we in the wrong. That rational would lead us to blame box cutters for September 11th. I refuse to accept that to be true. Ultimately, someone has to pull the trigger. 

Yes we need responsibility.

Yes we need accountability.

But, it is irresponsible for us to suggest that if we simply ban guns or box cutters that bad things will cease to happen. 

Humanity will always have those who make bad decisions, but it is our responsibility to take a well-rounded, balanced, and strategic look at how we can mitigate those bad decisions.
