Can we talk instead of spousal abuse instead of guns for a moment?
This article by Jessica Valenti is compelling reading about the recent murder of the Kansas City Chief football player's girlfriend.
I tend toward supporting 2nd Amendment rights, even though I don't ever recall even holding a real gun, and have no interest in ever holding a gun, let alone shooting one. The imbroglio over Bob Costas reading a local Kansas City writer's column is ultimately a sideshow. Yes, guns don't kill people, people kill people...um, with guns more easily than with say knives. But again, those of us who live in urbanized environments or tight suburban environments sometimes don't get why people like to have guns. And those of us who do not like to hunt and kill deer and other animals for food don't often see the point of view of those who do.
But spousal abuse is not something I see as having another "side."
