  1. The gun control issue a red hearing and a waste of energy. The focus should be on the rise of racist and antisemitic rhetoric on chat rooms. Ironically, Twitter bans have the unintended consequence of pushing angry racists into echo chambers like Gab where they feed into each other. Let them back on Twitter where they have to defend the merits of their mindless racist nonsense in the public square. They will at least be exposed to dissenting opinions and we will have the opportunity to change their minds for the better. Chasing them into the shadows from which they later emerge emboldened by uncontested conversations with their crazed racist peers is not working out.
