The Wall Street Journal piece on stopping the next publicity-seeking fool with a firearm that I linked to Sunday last is now seeing widespread linky-love in the gun-blogosphere. Good; it's a meme that needs to be spread far and wide.
Stop making them famous!
Yes, cover it -- it's news. But stop treating these jumped-up failures like they were Pol Pot or Charles Manson. Stop with the six-day grief-fest on national news and instead promote healing. If the media and their fave pols want to hand out some more gun-control rants, fine; but don't pretend these sickies are some new Everyman, or that we could stop them by melting down all the AR-15s that ever were.
