Wish it into the corn field!

We do have a problem with people who seem to have an entirely too detached and casual relationship with violence, and an overlapping problem with people viewing guns as problem-solving tools. This is visible in plenty of non-gun areas, too. People are on a short fuse and have been for a while, with the events of 2020 and beyond only exacerbating an existing societal tension.

Part of it is that people can't chill and let go. We carry rage-generation machines around in our pockets. I'll bet the people I muted in that discussion are still raging at me. Don't know, don't care. My arguing-on-the-internet days are long over.
