    Both sides will probably just keep shooting blanks at the real problems.

    The dems just want to talk about guns because they don’t want to come up with a budget

    Get the armed NRA guards settled into the Nation’s kindergartens and all will be well. I read that in the newsletter.

    That actually sounds like a reasonable idea.
    And you could get the NRA to provide the service, for free, via volunteers. The schools could provide consumables, like bullets and coffee.
    Of course, if there is any incident such as an AR15 massacre or accidental shooting, the NRA is fully liable. Along with their members.

    Not just in our kindergartens, but also our movie theaters, stadiums, malls, parking garages…everywhere! Otherwise, we’ll become a totalitarian police state!

    @Ms. Ima

    Add all of the hypocrites screaming for gun control that are armed or have armed security.

    Perhaps, but what is the real problem? Too many guns or too many people that shouldn’t have guns have them?

    Science says: it’s too many guns. When you have more guns in any place, there’s more gun deaths. There’s plenty of data from the U.S. and other countries to prove that. Not that it matters to conservatives. Science, you know.

    why not just arm the Kindergartners? Then they could join the NRA at age 5, and raise the intellectual level there.

    The Dems can’t get a word in edgeways. Reminds me of my ex-inlaws.

    echoraven et al: The general overseeing the F-22 said “Yes, they’re expensive, but if we didn’t intend to USE them, we wouldn’t BUY them.”


    The same could apply to firearms in civilian, as well as military hands. In a discussion yesterday with a “gun owner” who owns an arsenal far larger than mine, including his semi-auto, and AUTOMATIC weapons, he did point out the massive magazines and high rate of fire he has at hand is “fun” on the gun range, but he doesn’t intend, or see reason, to use those most aggressive “military style” weapons on the street.


    When he made the statement that as a kid, he told his teacher he wanted to be a sniper, I flinched a tad. We discussed the fact I had done some “long rifle work”, and he related a story or two from when he was in the “first” Gulf War in 91. HIs son, like mine, had been in Afghanistan and Iraq. We represented over 40 years on the timeline of American wars, and “a brief history of killing” (to quote the title of a book). He too found that the actual experience on the killing field, although he didn’t personally take part, was a “learning experience” that changed his attitude toward the application of all those weapons he owns. Yes, he still likes, well “loves”, guns, but he has a different view on the ethics of their use.


    The key to the large number of guns “problem”, is that so FEW Americans in the debate actually have personal history with actual killing, and cannot reference the mentality of those who can reference experience that tells them who might be dangerous if armed. It IS those who own weapons, with unrestrained ethical views on their use, who ARE dangerous.

    As this cartoon implies, it’s all talk. It also fails to address the underlying problems with our society as to why we are such ardent fans of violent behavior. Of course there is no mention of seriously renovating our mental health system and realistically addressing the issues of our society to provide real training and opportunity for our young people, giving them an alternative to belonging to gangs or a life of crime. It’s much easier for us to spend untold billions every year on the military and ship our people and resources over seas to maintain our status as the worlds policeman. Yeah, that makes sense coming from the worlds largest economy and supposedly most advanced society.

    @sw10mm

    So do the ones that scream for more and better arms.

    @Mr. Ima – if you don’t know the difference in risk to the President (or, for that matter, any highly visible public figure – e.g. John Lennon, Ronald Reagan, Abraham Lincoln, et al) as compared with the risk to an ‘average, everyday’ citizen, then it’s best you stick to the comics page – news and cogent commentary pages won’t help.
