    Yes, those four categories should be controlled.
    And why not?

    “…..If you’re a reasonable person and can think it through, you can come to no conclusion other than that more guns is the answer, not less….”
    .
    A lot of reasonable people have thought it through and have come to the conclusion that your suggestion is about as idiotic as its possible to get.

    Put 8 people who hate each other in a room. Now add 8 guns, and ammunition.

    I think they’d last longer before you added the weapons!

    A popular quote by the gun lobby that may or may not have had relevance in the 1940s, but going by the wave of shootings lately, you would now have to conclude that an armed society is a violent society.

    Maybe if more Americans went back to again caring about people, people would get health care, mental health care, jobs from American corporations that have shipped all the jobs overseas, and politicians and justices who realize that corporations are NOT “people”.

    Do you think I give up my seat on the bus or train to a pregnant woman because I think if I don’t, she might shoot me?

    Penn and Teller did a Showtime episode on their series called BULL$HIT that concluded that violent video games do not incite further violence in the players. That seems counter-intuitive but I’m willing to accept it as fact – they could not find hard evidence one way or the other. Yes I realize they are entertainers not journalists but assuming that is true do you think violence in movies and TV cause people to be numb to real violence? I would like to hear the thoughts of others.

    Harvard Injury Control Research Center
    Homicide
    1. Where there are more guns there is more homicide
    2. Across high-income nations, more guns = more homicide.

    3. Across states, more guns = more homicide

    I heard an interview with Piers Morgan by Larry Cudlow where Morgan said that Britain has as many violent movies, violent video games, and about the same incidence of mental illness but Britain has zero mass shootings. The difference between Britain and the U.S. being that Britain has no assault weapons in the hands of the public.
    .
    You could say the same thing about Japan where gun ownership and gun violence are almost zero. You could almost say the same thing about Canada and Australia where mass shootings are almost zero.

    Don’t be so rational! It’ll give the gun nuts something to shoot for!

    Over and over gun-people quote this line from “Beyond This Horizon”, which is surely one of Heinlein’s weakest novels. You might try “Tunnel in the Sky”, which has a lot to say about why government is necessary and why people have to work together.

    When Obama visited Mars it gave him perspective on earth problems.
    .
    In a statement made Sept 20, 2011, Mr. Basiago confirmed Mr. Obama’s co-participation in the 1980 Mars training class, stating: “Barry Soetoro, a student at Occidental College, was in my Mars training class under Major Ed Dames at The College of the Siskiyous in Weed, California in 1980. That fact has been corroborated by one of my other classmates, Brett Stillings. Two years later, when he was taller, thinner, more mature, a better listener, using the name ‘Barack Obama,’ and attending a different college, Columbia University, we crossed paths again in Los Angeles and I didn’t recognize him as the person that I had been trained with in the Mars program and encountered on the surface of Mars. In fact, doing so would have been virtually impossible in any case, because measures had been taken to block our later memories of Mars shortly after we completed our training in 1980.”

    I read it – interesting and I agree that it is sounds logically true – but they do not cite any actual evidence to support their case. They say that boys spend 13 hours average doing this stuff. If that is true, seems like we should have killings every week.
