  •  No, it's logical (0+ / 0-)

    If a building collapsed due to an earthquake, would you use that event as a rallying call for more hurricane monitoring?

    From Faito's post, it makes much more sense to use the V-Tech shooting to call for background checks, because at least that guy would have failed.

    •  The system was corrected in response to VT (0+ / 0-)

      The exact symptom was addressed, not sweeping broad based legislation.

      •  Good, that's the best result (0+ / 0-)

        Specific issues should be addressed through specific, targeted resolutions.  I'm not a fan of sweeping broad based actions, like the Patriot Act.  Too many unintended consequences, too much concentrated power.
