Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Incredible. We may be seeing "Pigs Fly" soon too ... or Refrigerator Salesmen in the Arctic, if this keeps up ...

Fox News' Megyn Kelly Grills NRA's Wayne LaPierre:  What Do You Say To Newtown Families? (Video -- worth watching)

by Brett LoGiurato, BusinessInsider.com -- Apr. 4, 2013,

Before introducing LaPierre, Kelly played a clip of some Newtown families being interviewed by CBS anchor Scott Pelley in a clip set to air Sunday on "60 Minutes."

"It's powerful to listen to. Those families directly affected say if Adam Lanza, the shooter at Newtown, had not had 30-round magazines -- if he had only had 10 rounds -- more children would have lived," Kelly said. "Your thoughts?"

LaPierre didn't directly respond to her question [...]

Kelly continued to press LaPierre on the original point, [...]

LaPierre seemed caught off guard.

"Megyn, people that know guns know you can change magazine clips in a second," he said, stammering between sentences. "There's no evidence, you know, that anything would have changed."

NRA's LaPierre:
"There is no evidence ... anything would have changed."

These folks would probably have a different view of the matter ...

Short preview clip of the '60 Minutes' interview slated for this Sunday:

Parents of the victims of the Newtown, Conn., massacre tell Scott Pelley that theirs is a lifetime quest to change gun laws in hopes of preventing the gun violence that took their young children. Watch Pelley's two-part report on Sunday, April 7 at 7 p.m. ET/PT.
Newtown survivor:

Limiting Magazine size and universal Background checks, if I had to pick two [solutions.]

Longer version the '60 Minutes' previous coverage of the Newtown assault:

NRA's LaPierre:

"There is no evidence" ... that 'limits on magazine clips' will 'save lives.'
Says him, -- the overly-paid sponsor of weapons manufacturers, as per usual.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

[Megyn Kelly: ]
"You hear the parents of those children killed ... say 11 children had the chance to escape while [the shooter] reloaded ... That is, to me, the most compelling argument ... for this limitation on [ammunition]."
Megyn Kelly Questions Wayne LaPierre Over Limiting Magazine Clips (VIDEO)
-- HuffPost -- 04/04/2013

NRA's LaPierre:

"There is No evidence" ... that 'limits on magazine clips' will 'save lives.'

No evidence?

I'd think those Eleven Newtown kids who escaped ALIVE from the Newtown shooter, during such a Magazine change interruption,

-- just might constitute "SOME evidence," Wayne.

Like I said, "Incredible."  On so many levels.

These brave souls interviewed by Lawrence O'Donnell recently, would probably beg to differ with NRA's LaPierre too, regarding his blatant claims that "There is No Evidence".  (Says him.)

Parents took away his gun, Tucson Shooter just went out and bought a Semi-Automatic
by jamess -- Mar 28, 2013

They manage to subdue and HALT their shooter after just a 6-person death-toll count,

-- during such a Magazine-change, NRA-commercial break, 'No-Evidence' interruption, in the assault-empowered rampage.
