“An Armed Society Is a Polite Society” 0
Once more, politeness becomes child’s play.
If you have taken driver refresher classes, I have (to get a break on my insurance rates), you may have noticed that the instructors do not refer to automobile “accidents.” They refer to “crashes.” One instructor told me that this was a purposeful change in terms, to emphasis that almost all vehicle “accidents” could have been prevented if the driver or drivers, depending on how many vehicles were involved, had done something differently.
I hold that the same applies to shootings. A shooting may be intentional or it may be negligent, but it cannot be “accidental.”
