    Keep pushing.
    Keep fighting.
    Keep talking about Gun Control.

    Don't let these loud gun nuts screaming about the 2nd amendment drown out getting something changed here and now!

    A majority of Americans want some form of Gun Control legislation passed now. The NRA, GOP and Tea Party lunatics are just being the loud minority in the room. We cannot and should not let them derail real, effective Gun Control legislation just because they are whining.

    Children died.
    Many others died before them.
    It's time we put an end to this.

      Amendment will not stop the process of determining what actually will help lower gun accidents and general gun violence.

      We'll jut have to listen to them.

      Terrorist gun nuts will be an issue because they are delusional and WILL act on those delusions.

      But it will not stop the process of finding effective interventions.

      Effective interventions will probably be nuts and bolts kinds of things, nothing terribly dramatic.

      it won't be a blanket ban, as dreamed of by some, nor will it be a house-to-house gun hunt, as feared by some.

      So let's get the drama out of the discussion ASAP.


      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

        Because the measures on the table now will not stop more slaughters from happening, and there will be more slaughters whether or not this round of reforms succeeds. Eventually, a consensus will emerge that we have to follow Britain and Australia, get rid of all semi automatic weapons, handguns, rifles, ban their possession and prosecute offenders. The total number of guns in circulation also needs to be reduced.
            At the moment this seems as unlikely and near impossible as say, legal gay marriage did 20 years ago, or a black president. But demographics favor us, and the bitter clingers are dying every day. reason will ultimately prevail.
