Nothing much will happen to our gun disease.  Guns give people the illusion of control over their world.

Classic Doonesbury from 1979.

The people who need that illusion are easily shepherded, these days via social media.  Scratch postcards in the cartoon above and fill in tweets — nothing else has changed.  With the Russians doing everything they can to create chaos and violence here, it’s hard to imagine it will anytime soon.  But I don’t blame the Russians entirely.  Americans are stupid enough all on their own.
