  •  the anti gun control (0+ / 0-)

    pols will use the tragedy in boston as a cover to carry the water for the nra and the gun nuts in america, as bad as the bombing in boston is there were more individuals killed in newton although not injured or maimed.
    all violence and the means used to carry out mayhem must be put under an umbrella that protects all of america not just the elites who are seldom affected personally by incidents like this, if they were legislation like gun control would be on the fast track to passing by a voice vote i'm sure.

    •  It would be instructive to compare bomb control (0+ / 0-)

      laws to gun control laws. Of course, mad bombers can always make their own using a wide range of handbooks on the Internet, but that doesn't stop us from licensing dealers in explosives and restricting sales in various ways.

      Well, actually, with a good machine shop you can make your own guns, too, and be at no more risk of blowing yourself up than with bomb-making or meth labs. The 3D-printed gun is going to make the problem much worse.
