    No matter what your stand on gun laws, this editorial illustration is appropriate, civil, and respectful.
    No one condones gun violence.
    On an ironic note, after doing a five minute segment on the shooting, including conversations with people who talked about the shooter playing online first person shooter games on a large screen tv, the newscaster said the following -
    “And on a lighter note, gamers are excited about the release of Grand Theft Auto V.”

    You shouldn’t be so hard on yourself.

    @Respectful Troll

    This is one time that I TOTALLY agree with you!
    We cannot keep publishing violence on TV, in the movies, on the internet, and in games without the ‘chickens coming home to roost’. What really gets me is the ‘fake’ horror shown by the news people when they are the ones supporting the horrible products of Hollywood, et al.

    Well said!
    Let’s hope people like Genome Project wake up to facts.

    I find your comparison to 9-11 and gun control enlightening about the attitude of ignorance.
    Laws were indeed passed and no planes have been run into buildings since. They came up with laws that worked because it was demanded.
    Gun control is the same, when it is DEMANDED it will be done.

    Steve: thanks for a respectful ’toon.

    Automatic weapons are NOT “illegal”, they just require a tax and license. My nephew owns TWO fully automatic weapons!!

    What the hell do you expect!? We haven’t done ANYthing to stop this kind of violence. Of course it’s going to happen again and again and again…

    Perspective, like calling A-10s firearms, I stand by my comment.
    And if gun control was demanded by the people a little thought put into it would cause realization.
    This would take more than half the population demanding it, and those would be giving up their guns to make the demand.
    Just because it is impossible for that scenario to ever come up does not mean it would not be functional.
    But then, 50 years ago who ever thought cigarettes would decline?
    Education of the next generation could work magic, but would require that demand for policy change which does not and will not exist.

    Are you ignoring perspective just to be silly?
    Private pilots can fly their private planes into any target they have the skill to approach.
    How many Commercial airline jets have been hijacked and flown into a target?
    The laws passed functioned.
    Of course everyone hates the TSA worse than the IRS but the problem did stop.
    What facts am I missing?
    Or will you say you misunderstood?
    And hoped I would be gone?

    Hmmm, Molon and others, about that Bank of America robbery standoff between the “bad guys” and police in Los Angeles, where the robbers had the police outgunned for quite some time They had “assault” rifles, on full automatic, helmets, and body armor! So, there indeed have been crimes since ’34 committed with full auto weapons. You might also want to check on some “gang banger” drive-bys and other shootings around this country that take place on a regular basis. Granted, those have been with Un licensed automatic weapons, and a bunch that were purchases as semi-autos, and converted quite easily.
