    ....do we really know why Americans keep shooting each other? The answer is "No" because the NRA has halted any studies on the subject. My opinion: it isn't really the guns. It's the gunlove, which includes the manufacture and purchase of ever more lethal guns (and so in that sense it IS the guns).

    Of course, a study will only delay any action. I regard America and guns the way I look at a teenager who keeps aiming his BB gun at his brother's eye despite having been told not to do so.

    America needs a timeout on guns.

    If you hate government, don't run for office in that government.

      I'm a supporter of the 2nd and all the rights in the Bill of Rights, but the NRA does not speak for me. I have had a hate on them for a long time, they are a destructive force in our society. They muddy the water and encourage an unhealthy view of guns, IMO.
