    and I'm just guessing, frankly, I don't know--don't worry, Democrats won't ban any guns.

    They'll probably pass some namby-pamby legislation that nibbles around the edges of the problem.

    If they really want to solve the problem of rampage shootings, they'll go after inequality.  

    Study after study has shown that the western nations (and yes, we top the list) with the highest inequality, also suffers from the highest rates of homicides and mental illness.

    Last time I checked, the last shooter fit that profile.

    The Democratic Party will come closer to eviscerating the social safety net, than risk angering "the right."

    And no offense, but it certainly makes little sense to tie the two topics together, as an even trade-off.  Unless you are wanting to agitate a lot of folks, LOL!

      if you'd read the diary, you'd know that.  you would have also maybe noticed the hyperlink to another diary of mine in which i say basically the exact same thing you just did.
