    ...again and again and expecting different results -- Albert Einstein

    Horse is already out of the barn in terms of 300,000,000 firearms already in the hands of Americans, 4% of whom are psychopaths or sociopaths according to psychiatrists. This means at least 12,000,000 guns are in the hands of the murderous thanks to NRA leadership that has blocked bans on gun show and unlicensed dealer sales to criminals, Mexican drug dealers and the insane, automatic and multi round clip bans, federal background checks, armor piercing bullet sales, an international treaty to ban gun smuggling, etc.

    These are also the guys who turned the Founders' stated intent to preserve "a well regulated Militia" of militiamen firing single shot muskets once a minute into individual possession of thirty round plus firepower guns by scared or crazy people to initiate fear inducing encounters and shoot to kill innocent victims with no fear of prosecution or civil liability.

    One thing I know for sure, we should not trust the guys responsible for letting the horse out of the barn to get the horse back when their motivation remains to keep the horse gone from the barn.
