'This weekend’s double-header is only gratuitous confirmation of what was already a foregone conclusion: You have won. The right to bear arms is, evidently, inalienable. No argument can persuade you, no slaughter can shame you into second-guessing your convictions, or giving up an inch of ground. The corpses in the aisles, the widowers and orphans, the prosthetics and colostomy bags, the sidewalk altars and pint-sized caskets, are all testaments to your victory. This is your country. The one you wanted. It is thanks to you, who have donated to the NRA & phoned your representatives & stood firm, time and time again, that Americans just like this weekend’s shooters — whether you agree with their agendas or not — were free to buy firearms without intrusive government delays or barriers.'

Sarcasm just doesn't bring people back, but it is this paragraph which goes so well with the photo of our President in the hospital, at the end.

"For now, there is nothing to do but hold fast in the face of this latest media frenzy, buy more ammunition, and of course, offer your thoughts and prayers to the bereaved. But you can best honor those most recent martyrs to your cause by going out and celebrating your right to bear arms today. Whether it's by killing a groundhog, blowing cans off a fence post, shooting up a speed limit sign, or just firing exuberantly into the air, exercise your constitutional freedoms in the name of those who died to protect them. Remember: Those brave heroes laid down their lives and their children's lives so that you could continue to practice your sacred, patriotic hobby. So enjoy your guns, cherish your freedom but most of all, be proud."

Yes. It is my right to own one or a dozen guns. As long as I use my guns responsibly, you can criticize me, because that is your right. However, please note that some of the actions you describe are not the actions of a responsible gun owners. Most gun owners don't behave the way you describe.


Most gun owners don't become mass shooters. Those that do cross that line are people that are basically unpredictable, until they are close to commiting that crime. They all suffer from some sort of mental illness that too often has gone undetected for a long time.


You can write all the anti gun articles you want, but they aren't going to change anything. Banning guns or even a specific gun isn't going to change human nature one iota. Violence is very much a part of the American life style. Until that changes, you can't address the problem.


Go forth and preach love and understanding. You might find some success there.
