  •  Yes, there are easily 100 MILLION gun owners (9+ / 0-)

    .... who are NOT members of the NRA.

    You know, the law abiding citizens who own guns. Around 30 MILLION own "assault" weapons.

    It is not politically wise to just assume gun owners are all redneck right wing doodle heads, many are perhaps your democratic neighbors.

    This one time, perhaps we can stick to purely facts and rational reality based strategies to put policies in effect to help eliminate gun violence.

    When "our" side starts acting and sounding like the other side does when it freaks out on the subject of abortion or the gay, it does no one any good, and nothing will ever get solved.

    Let us be very grown up about this subject matter.
