    Kelly is an enraged, name-dropping bully who needs psychiatric treatment.
    Kelly is an American hero astronaut who had his wife shot up by a mental case who was able to purchase a handgun under Arizona's non-existent gun laws.  If anyone needs psychiatric help, it is the political forces that allow this situation to continue.

      Couldn't agree more.

      Since when is someone's right to own a gun----- more important than my right not to get shot and killed in a public place?

      Like Congress on the Corner----or while walking home----or while cutting across campus---or while going to school---or while standing in line for a film----or while listening to music (loud or otherwise)?

      Why is gun ownership----gun availability------and gun purchase----- more important than my right to continue breathing?

      Sad commentary----- for the most powerful country in the world------- that they cannot guarantee the safety of their citizens in public places.

      And they can't.

      They really can't.

      And that is being proven -----on pretty much a weekly basis in this country.

      With gun laws this lax----and a citizenry this out---of---control---obviously ------something needs to be done.
