There-Legged Stool Analogy
Posted on June 13, 2016
Time to trot out the three-legged stool analogy:
cut of one leg and the stool falls. So each leg is 100% responsible for holding up the stool.
In a like manner, the Orlando massacre depended on many factors. Fixing any one of them might have prevented or ameliorated it.
1. No guns, no massacre.
2. Guns only with tiny magazines, much smaller massacre.
3. No sales of guns to recognized threats identified by the FBI, massacre much less likely.
4. No hate, no massacre.
5. Better security at the club, no massacre.
6. and yes. if everyone at the club had been packing then most likely:
a. far fewer would have died, and
b. for very good reasons far fewer would have been willing to attend the club.
7. and yes, if we didn’t allow immigration then
a. no massacre and
b. hardly any people in the US.
