The Congress of the United States is conducting hearings on gun violence. This is simply a cynical show to create the appearance of concern for public safety. One politician moaned that the U.S. is "awash in guns".
Guns do not grow on trees. They are manufactured. In fact, they are manufactured in great volume with taxpayer money, funneled through the Pentagon. Making and selling guns is a big international business.
An international convention on the banning of gun production could wash away guns eventually. It would also wash away the military-industrial complex which is invested in one group of people hating another to the point of organized murder.
Guns do not kill people. People kill people. Yes. It is now time for people to kill guns.
