    Elect me and I will take your guns away. Then I will take the cops guns away too.

    Throw in a “Legalize Pot” and we got ourselves a ballgame :-)

    I would go for a single payer Canadian-style health system myself.

    We already have many sensible gun laws, in some states and places. We also have some excessively strict gun laws, in some states and places. We also have some excessively lax gun laws, in some states and places. Unfortunately, this is where our odd balance of federal and state and local authority does not serve us well.

    Regulating weapons in one place while leaving things wide open in another, transportation being what it is, is like the old joke about restaurants: "Having a ‘no smoking’ SECTION in a restaurant is like having a ‘no pissing’ section in a swimming pool.

    On the other hand, rules that make sense in an urban community of five million riddled with gang violence and drugs, appear absurd in a rural community of five thousand where there hasn’t been a murder in a decade, and vice versa.

    Guns are banned in DC. More laws would not have changed a thing. The only people who had weapons are the security guards, with ARs and pistols.

    I was going to suggest painting with the blood of the politicians, litle by little until they become dimwitted, dull and lifeless, but it’s too late for that.

    So what you’re saying is. . . . do nothing at all? Looking for a suggestion here.

    What is sad here is the death of democracy. A small group of officials and organizations can completely thwart the will of the majority (and a reasonable will) to the detriment of all.

    I have no problem with hunting, target or sport shooting. Or even having a gun for defense, if you can prove the necessity. But guns are just too lethal too quickly to allow such unfettered access all the time any time.

    Ah! Another shiny object in front of a Progressive! Intellect a meter wide and a nanometer deep.

    Guns are not banned in D.C., that ban was overturned. And you can buy them 20 miles away in Virginia, as the killer did.

    This toon is defective. The very premise of it is the word “sensible” which is subjective and therefore there is no point!

    @Omnius

    So, Omnius, your gratiutious ad hominen attacks aside, what exactly does "…sensible gun control… consist of? Exactly how many guns can a “moron” own? Who will be deciding that number?
