    Now all we have is Mike Bloomberg.
    And Michael Moore.  And the Brady people.  And Gabby Giffords and probably especially her husband.  And the AFSC.  And probably 99% of Occupy.  And the Columbine families and the Aurora families and the Portland Mall families and the Newtown families.  And probably most of the families in North Philly and Camden and every other urban battleground in America.  And most of the prime time MSNBC gang.  And us.

    Time to make noise.  Time to NOT BE POLITE.  Time to push President Obama and the rest of the Democrats to do the thing they probably want to do anyway and the thing that is THE RIGHT THING RIGHT NOW!

      What are you proposing?

       The guns were purchased legally by the mother.  This shooting was not about easy access to guns - it was about an unhinged individual striking out against his mother.

        ... whether owning a gun actually makes you safer.  Certainly didn't work out for the mother in this case, did it?  No recollection of the numbers, but I've read that quite a significant number of people get killed with their own guns.
