The U.S. is recovering from yet another mass shooting, and the debate over gun control seems no closer to a satisfying resolution. But what if a stand-up comic already figured it out?
In this now-famous bit from Chris Rock's Bigger and Blacker, the comic argues for "bullet control" ("I think all bullets should cost five thousand dollars") instead of gun control. But it's not just a joke—he's right.
Over on Kinja, MidwestBalladReview outlines a thorough case for "a nice, steep tax on ammunition" as the only way to reduce the number of shootings. It's not as simple as a $5,000 price tag on bullets, but it makes a lot of sense.
