Mass Politeness


A tweet from Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly points out that gun advocates claim that the solution to mass shootings is to arm everyone. They claim that “an armed society is a polite society”.

But if more guns make us safer, then Texas should be one of the safest and most polite places in the US. So how come 4 of the 10 deadliest shootings in modern US history happened in Texas?
