    ...what guns were used yesterday.  So, how can you characterize them as being among your "worst ones"?  

    Prohibition doesn't work.  Calls for gun confiscation will only alienate legal gun owners and drive the Democratic party into Green Party status.  Those who own illegal guns will not just turn them in because you ask nice.  Guns were completely prohibited on the VT campus, and that did nothing to dissuade the murderer.

    And this kind of proposed action is only a band-aid on deeper problems with violence and crime in this country.

      and no one said confiscation. . . .

      Will somebody please tell me how standing up for Saturday night specials and AK 47s and 25 round clips is patriotic?

      I think there are plenty of good solid democrats that will rally around better gun laws--and I think there are plenty of articulate pols that can explain the difference between a shotgun and an assault rifle.

      look at the culture--not saying you shouldn't--but look at the guns, too.

      Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge.
