Sure, for them.
For everyone else it goes something like this:
1 - mass shooting happens
2 - people in shock and grief struggling to understand what's happened
3 - offer thoughts and prayers
4 - do nothing else
5 - goto 1.
How can an advanced, first-world society allow this situation to continue to exist? It's tragically hilarious.
Dur to the number of deaths related to drunk driving, I would suggest the draconian measure of banning all alcohol use outside the home for starters. But that's not going to happen is it. So the great measures to cut down on gun violence will never happen either. And accessibility to alcohol is not even a constitutional right.
Twenty First Amendment?
There are problems with drunk driving but they have been lowered with DUI check points and servers being more vigilant and fines and punishment for impaired drivers and those who serve them. Not to mention the age at which adults can purchase alcohol was raised to 21. We The People saw a trending problem, petitioned Congress, and something was done. It is not perfect and there is room to improve.
Compare and contrast that with gun violence. Republicans solution is blame video games and decide nothing can be done so why bother?
