    A member of the reality-based community or something?

    My father and I were despairing over the latest tragedy yesterday but we agreed we are equally sick of all the platitudes and commitments to change each time these episodes happen. Obama is as guilty as the rest.

    If the MSM e.g. CNN spent 1/100th the time truly investigating gun crimes and the industry behind them as they do broadcasting victims' tears 24/7/3 after the event we might get somewhere.

    If we had a true leader as president he would say to the Repubs and NRA-beholden, 'NOT A PENNY MORE FOR ANY OF YOUR PROGRAMS' until there is a real ban on assault weapons and ammo.

    Not holding my breath.

      Unless millions of us do something more than complaining or predicting nothing will change, then little will. Start by writing letters to newspaper editors and voting out politicians who support the NRA by donating to their opponents. Start somewhere. There are dozen of anti-assault weapons groups. Find one and support them. Just a suggestion.
