Thank you for your perspective. I believe what this shows is that gun control is NOT the critical factor that many like to advertise. In fact, just as I've said many, many times, the problem is more one of culture than of gun availability and going after the guns is simply not addressing the actual problem. Factor in the price to be paid in pissing on the Constitution, and it's a misplaced, lazy answer with little hope of real benefit.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
