Guns... There needs to be something done about this. The fact that an upset election in Virginia makes news anchors more speechless than a school shooting disgusts me. The fact is that the fear placed into peoples hearts by the National Rifle Association is invalid 99% of the time. I don't know what else to say... Something needs to be done, I have suggested things in mock legislation all of which have been shot down (oh the irony), but the thought processes of people needs to change. People need to be educated about gun violence and be exposed to the horrors, not simple told they need a gun to defend themselves. Newsflash, that's what the police are for. Get your heads in the right place and think about what is best for the country and not the best for your corporation and personal gains.
