    It's actually funny how the NRA types come out with this "magic bystander" argument after so many mass shootings. They expect us to believe that if the gun laws had been more liberal, there would have been somebody there who could have taken the shooter down.

    I won't say that NEVER happens. I can recall two times when it did--when Colin Ferguson shot a lot of people on the Long Island Railroad a couple of decades ago, and when David Adkisson shot some people at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in 08--except that those 2 times, the people who took them down were unarmed!

    The furor over Friday's [10.5] job report revealed a political movement that is rooting for American failure, so obsessed with taking down Obama that good news drives its members into a blind rage. -Paul Krugman
