    conversation about gun safety or control must also include a willingness for us, as a society, to look at the violence that permeates our lives -- and that this country is the largest manufacturer and exporter of war weapons of any country on the planet.

    All of those are intertwined.

    As Nate Silver has noted, the terminology used in TV "news" should be examined for slant. We should also be willing to look at how we promote violence from a child's earliest days, including toy guns, violent sports like football, sales efforts on behalf of larger and more macho cars.

    The truth is rarely pure and never simple. -- Oscar Wilde
