In his remarks during the Dallas memorial service for the murdered policemen, President Obama made many comments that were not appropriate. One of them was that “It is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock (handgun) than get his hands on a computer or even a book.”
I submit that if a teenager has a Glock, he did not buy it; chances are much higher that he stole this gun. As for getting a computer or a book, a teenager can access a library to use a computer or borrow a book. There also are many organizations that will provide these items to teenagers free of charge. So please do not blame society for the fact that a teen has a gun instead of a computer or book!
There are many excuses for unlawful behavior when one should look to the perpetrator’s actions instead!
