Okay, a little aside here.
Looking at the events of the past few weeks, I have to point out I told someone... anyone so.
We have sufficient gun control, the people with guns in C'ville didn't use them. They remained safe because they had them. They remained civil because they had them or they had them because they wished to remain civil & to be given the respect that gun demands if they can't get any other.
The violence was clubs, thrown objects & a car.
Vans are being weaponized all over the place & it's not a new gimick, it's just getting more common. It's easy to get a van & not so easy to get a gun. It's easy to make a bomb & you can't outlaw the materials, you can restrict some of the better chemicals. You cannot restrict ammonia, chlorine, propane, diesel or petrol. You can't restrict nails, ball bearings & broken glass. There's a problem with making guns too difficult to acquire it is that people resort to the next best way to achieve their goals. When an idiot has a gun they shoot one or two people... maybe they shoot 70 & kill a few, when that same idiot uses a car they kill 1 or 20 & injure 20-100 or more. With a gun you have to reload, with a car, var or truck you've got all the fuel you need & plenty of room for a payload. You can't steer a bullet to stay on target & acquire new ones.
I'm just saying maybe we take some of that outrage I hear everytime a gun is used for an act of horror & turn it to better tracking rental vans, it's real easy to do & it might have prevented this attack by alerting authorities to the van by colocation.
