    My husband yesterday was telling me about Bob Costa's broadcast and the ensuing outrage. I do not understand why people are giving him grief for being 'political'. This seems to me to be a kind of censorship. Everything is political if it involves the public and policy that effects us all. I'm glad he spoke up and addressed the elephant in the room.

    I missed the statement by Mark Kelly. I'm glad these men are peaking up about a subject that has become a taboo for both politicians and among members of our communities. I hope this opens the doors so that we can discuss this issue openly and sanely.

    When I was canvasing for Obama in 2008 the first thing out of the mouths of the right wing nut's I encountered  was always, 'Obama is going to take away our guns' Younger ones followed that with 'Obama's going to take away our pot.' Paranoia and big money keeps sane gun control, from ever being even rationally discussed by our media or our 'representatives'.
