This won't be much of a diary. I came across a story which explains where we currently stand in a way I never could. It was written by the mother of a mentally ill son. I'm frankly surprised I haven't seen this covered on dKos. If any of you think gun control in the form of limiting firepower might be a path forward, I would like to have you imagine what a motivated suicide bomber, acting alone, might accomplish if he were intelligent enough to construct a device on his own, and then read this.
