    I'm speaking to the culture. I'm saying that whatever your preferred remedies to any perceived problem surrounding gun control, we're faced with an opposition among which are those who regard guns like we might regard coffee mugs- as something you can just leave lying around with no regard to who is in the vicinity.

    How can you speak to someone who is so careless with something so potentially lethal, something for which lethality is the reason for its existence?

    I'm stating, not arguing, that this is a facet of our society that we need to consider when presenting our case for sane gun regulation.

    I think you were reading my comments in a different frame of mind than that in which they were written.

    Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal. - Martin Luther King, Jr.
