  •  Will they study the effect of bombing "them" (0+ / 0-)

    "over there" as a public policy solution to 9/11 helplessness panic ?

    Our nation glorifies solving our fears by bullying the world with excessive armed violence potential of funding an overkill MIC.  

    Desperate people resort to violence when other options for problem resolution fail.    

    The Sandy Hook shooter's mom was a legal purchaser, but it appears that she was pretty paranoid about impending financial collapse of our economy.    So who will study causation linked to our failure to find, punish, and take our cash back from banking fraudsters?      

    She was well off, in a community which seemed to feel they were pretty darn "safe" from the usual suspect violences.

    Our founders used their food supply/self defense guns --- AND robbed enemy armories when need be.  

    Some data seems scrubbed from net ---- since I read it over a decade ago.     One set of data studied downtrend in violent attacks on women in former high crime area --- after gun carry restrictions were eased.    The other I was surprised by was high percent of ex-felon gun crime committed using guns stolen from law enforcement folk.  

    How would you calculate data   to account for the variable of higher gun crime numbers in gun homes ---- because they got guns as reaction to correct assessment that they were living in circumstances with a very high risk of violent crime?   ie --- would their have been even more without their own guns as deterrent?

    We can't even keep voting rights equal for minorities --- so be cautious of restrictions which can be twisted to further disarm the least of us.

    De fund + de bunk = de EXIT--->>>>>
