Men Control, Not Gun Control

Another tragic shooting occurred in our country on December 14, 2012; 20 children and 6 adults were shot to death by Adam Lanza at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. This follows other shootings at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, a movie theater in Colorado and a shopping mall in Oregon.

These shootings all involve guns so obviously they renew calls for gun control. But they also, every one of them since as far back as I can remember, involve men as the perpetrators. I know of no women who have ever taken up a gun to intentionally kill innocent people. Why are there not calls for “men control” as there are for gun control?

How do you control men? Since men make up almost half of the population and are the ones who keep carrying out these horrific attacks, I think it’s a pretty important question.
