    It is truly irrelevant that the president of the United States shoots clay at his country house. --

    -- for those of us in the reality based world who want even stricter gun control than the president is proposing, just take solace in the fact that even President Obama, gun lover, can understand how one can balance love of shooting stuff with public safety.

    My position on gun control has nothing to do with the fact that I haven't fired a weapon in 25 yrs.

    My position on gun control has nothing to do with the fact that I'm Mama to three girls.

    I don't have to love guns to have my opinion matter.

    I don't deserve to be dismissed because I don't love guns.

    I don't have to have children of my own to have my reaction to the slaughter of 5 & 6 yr. olds matter.

    I deserve to have my opinion considered because I understand the fear at the prospect of losing a child.

    We've tried it the NRA way.  FULL FAIL!  

    Time for the rest of us to give it a go.  Find the balance.
