I've posted this before and got a couple of teabaggers who thought they could use it as an excuse to be smarmy snarkshits but in light of today's events in Connecticut, this most recent Tom Paxton song, originally written for the Denver shootings a couple of years ago, seems all too appropriate. As activists gather in Washington to demand action from the only one capable of mustering the good fight, we must be armed with good arguments, smart responses to criticisms and, of course, some good songs. Christine Lavin has noted that handguns have now murdered over one million Americans, 99+% of whom would have survived but for the liberal access to guns allowed in our land. Maybe that's how we need to argue this- call it LIBERAL access and make one of the usual red-baiting associations to prove that access to these weapons is really a leftist plot to get right-wingers to kill each other
