    There is a story in today’s paper about a woman who has a mentally ill son. This is the best I can do to send you a link to her blog.

    Dianne Feinstein’s bill is the right idea, but the wrong solution. There is no point in outlawing guns. They are out there, there are millions, they are made of metal and will last for a thousand years if they are kept oiled. Failing that, I could find materials in my basement that would produce a workable gun, and it doesn’t take much knowledge of the subject to figure out how to do it.

    Bullets, on the other hand, are time consuming to make and require specific equipment. Production of enough to do serious damage would require planning and patience that are not characteristic of those who shoot up elementary schools. And, working on such a project might attract the attention of someone sane.

    Bullets can be individually stamped, and their sale can be registered, so that every bullet can be traced back to the person who purchased it. This way, a guy who wants to buy a couple boxes of bullets to go shoot deer, or the woman who wants a box to keep with the gun in her bedside drawer, won’t set off any warning bells. But the guy who is buying an arsenal will attract attention before he finds a more lethal way to do it.

    I saw this and grabbed my kids and cried. Have not slept well for awhile now, all I can see is the faces of terrorfied kids. God help us all to find a solution to the issue. make it fast, we can’t afford this again.

    Maybe there shoulda been an AR-15 in the middle pointing at the empty chair, and the caption “Let’s play Spin the Rifle”…

    GUNS DO KILL. Don’t believe the same old nonsense from the pro gun lobby that apparently feel that their right to own an assault weapon is more important than a six year old’s right to turn seven. We’re already hearing the old replies that we heard after Columbine, Luby’s, Va. Tech, and all the other slaughters over the last forty years or so. If the weapons were banned all those children would be alive to celebrate Christmas. If you are arguing for the right to own assault weapons it’s time to reexamine your life and your priorities. You cannot defend the indefensible so please don’t try. It’s offensive

    This had to be the saddest and most shocking massacre yet.
    This is indefensible!

    Think about this. Guns were invented with the SOLE design purpose of causing such extremely serious bodily injury to a living creature that it is unlikely to survive such a wound.
    All improvements made in guns since the 2nd Amendment was ratified were intended to increase the severity of wounding and to increase the amount of wounds that a single shooter can inflict.

    I forgot. Another set of improvements was to increase the distance that someone can inflict such grievous wounds. In fact, some guns can kill someone from a mile and a half away, and that is nothing short of assassination.

    Oh wow! What a thought. I can see it.
    Good perspective Zuhalmon.

    What do you think of the the recent decision in France to convict of manslaughter a psychiatrist whose patient hacked man to death ?
    Le Monde is nuts to call the decision “courageous”. I suspect more people will now find themselves incarcerated “just in case”.

    How do the Swiss do it?

    asked: ’How do the Swiss do it?
    Well, I figured out why their cheese is the way it is. While at the range instead of using paper targets, they take out their aggression on their cheeses!

    “How do the Swiss do it?”


    You’ve asked this before, but did you read the answers?


    1) Training.
    2) Registration.
    3) Regulation.
    4) Responsibility.

    Where do we already have strict gun control? Schools!

    Where have many of these atrocities taken place? Schools

    2 + 2

    Now go look up how much crime has increased in Australia since they called in the guns.
