    •  I've often muttered the same thing (14+ / 0-)

      I think every single person who owns a gun, or wants to own a gun, should be on the village green (or the area's equivalent) every single Saturday morning no matter the weather at 6am & be put through what would essentially be weekly basic training (hiking, running, crawling, target practice, classes).

      That said, if I could have one wish, it would be for all mass murder weapons to disappear forever but since that is not going to happen, I'm with Chris Rock - bullets should cost $5000 each (he argues for "bullet control" since we are long past having any control over guns). It's the best idea I've heard about "gun" control in a long, long time.

      PS I spend every Friday volunteering in my twin nephews' first grade class & with the kindergarten class of a little girl I've known since she was 4 months old.  This shooting is hitting extra, extra hard today since when I read the news, I see the faces of the kids & the teachers I worked with all day today.  It was kids & people just like the ones I spent the day with who were killed.  I am both furious & heartbroken.  And I feel like puking.
