    And what I've read in the comment sections over the past couple of days makes me wonder if it really is possible to have any kind of discussion at all.

    The gun supporters are out in force.  Almost none express sympathy for the victims (although surely they must feel it).  Instead, they rage against any informed discussion whatsoever.  The gun supporters, indeed, have been all over this site for the last 24 hours and while they've been far more reasonable than the incredible nonsense I've seen elsewhere they still try to give the impression that those who support sensible regulation are outnumbered. We're not.  We just need to add our voices to the mix even if we're shouted down.

    In the end, though, a discussion isn't enough.  We need action.

      The families in Connecticut lost what they love; and the gun supporters are trying to cling on to what they love.

      Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
