One thing we can all agree on: The current state of affairs regarding guns in this country isn't working. We are in drastic times; something drastic needs to change. So far we've been concentrating on restricting the quantity and/or quality of guns we citizens should be able to possess. Here and there we bring up weeding out those with mental problems as a solution. I never thought I'd be advocating mandatory military service as a method to affect the intrinsic problem of our gun-violent society but there are compelling arguments to do just that. If you look at developed countries around the world which require mandatory military service from it's citizens coupled with sensible gun control laws, they seem to fair far better with their rate of gun violence than our country. Would mandatory military service also be a good way for society to weed out those with mental problems and those with anger management issues? Just wondering.
