With of all the recent media coverage and political attention concerning the killing of schoolchildren in Connecticut, the American blame game has begun in full force. There are those who blame guns and those who blame the gun owners. Others wish to blame the media, while still others blame mental health practitioners for not accurately assessing mental illness among the masses.
Some people even blame the gun manufacturers, though those same folks do not blame the automobile industry for alcohol-related fatalities. Apparently, logic is not a requirement to play the blame game.
Therefore, I have decided to blame political correctness for the senseless carnage. Let me opine.
