    I'll diary this when I get time, but I guess everyone's already forgotten the recent mass murders at Illinois' Northern University and at the one university in the southeast. the death toll from those two incidents alone was what? 60 people? that's just off the top of my head.

    since obviously we're not going to get rid of handguns, the only answer is to surveil potential murderers like Loughner, who had a trail a mile long on the web-- which was obviously a red flag.

    the federal government is in fact already doing this regarding potential "Islamic terrorists" with several preemptive arrests in recent months/years.

    so the notion by various law enforcement agencies, "this can't be done", it totally false and bogus.

    IT IS being done, and successfully-- against potential Islamic terrorists.

    Loughner has referred to himself as a terrorist. it's time to face facts: terrorism is not the exclusive tool of Islamic terrorists.
