Greg Dworkin and I got stuck on guns again today, in the wake of the international attention being paid to the child shooting in Kentucky. Sounds like the background check bill might actually come back for another vote, possibly just prior to the August recess. Gun rights advocate Gayle Trotter pulls a story from the files to prove a point about women and guns, but doesn't exactly bulls-eye this one. An historical #GunFAIL moment, as we pay tribute, Ken Burns-style, to the 150th anniversary of the accidental shooting of Stonewall Jackson by his own men. Other topics: do Wall Street players use a "drug lord playbook?" Polls show a significant chunk of Republicans think "armed revolution" may be necessary. And they're already at war with science. Plus, turns out they actively avoid buying behavior that's pro-environment. Just like their Senators actively avoid common sense solutions if it might help Obama. The InfoWars "reporter" is mocked on the street in Boston. A Pennsylvania judge goes to jail for literally selling kids into private prisons. Because privatization is so awesome.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
