    than this one? Because this is pretty much the exact opposite. Going after the money of the gun industry is a great suggestion. Not yours, mind you, but worth further exploration. But this? This is nearly everything WRONG with the gun debate in this country (CC help me I almost wrote guntry). You do harm to solving the problem with efforts like this piece. If you have an ounce, even a gram, of concern for ending the problem of gun violence this 'fiction' isn't helping.

    What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.

      yes- i very much hold fast to my belief that we should let 'big money' fight it out if we dangle the right carrots- and enjoyed expounding in that direction.

      this piece was spewed out in a starbucks this morning in less than 3 hours- i was attempting (and perhaps failing) to bring the issue down to base level regarding (perhaps melodramatically)- how it would affect a parent- how it would have affected me.

      i am tremendously anti gun- and can only point out that the availability of the uncle's guns and the participation in weekend gun culture were/are at the core of the subsequent massacre.

      thanks for the comment and the scathing critique
      boy did i get slammed-

      oh- i did add an update a few minutes ago-
      gee- better take a break.
      happy new year
