    Why Not Renew the “Assault Weapons” Ban? Well, I’ll Tell You… « Kontradictions

    "I’m just going to submit this uncomfortable truth to both camps up front, with the vain hope that it will not sound callous:

    Mass shootings are a tiny, tiny problem. Which isn’t to say that they aren’t utterly horrifying in more than one way. People’s lives are destroyed, both literally and figuratively. What I mean to say is that if we were to prioritize our political attention to topics according to how many lives were at stake, mass shootings wouldn’t even be on the radar."
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    Wow.

    That is undoubtably the most reason a self-proclaimed leftist has ever displayed regarding gun control.

    Hats off to you, sir.

    Thanks for posting the link, Brad426. Excellent information that we all need to know.

    Thanks for posting the link to that article. I generally agree that any gun legislation has nothing to do with guns or crime but bowing to the liberal anti-gun base. I'm also quite sure that VP Biden will come up with something equally nonsensical. I did like a couple of the Zingers the NRA came up with: "The answer to a BG with a gun is a GG with a gun." Hopefully the GG has been practicing and is better than the NYC cops that shot a bunch of bystanders.

    Thanks for posting that Brad. An excellent well written, well reasoned article like this with the facts to back it up is what needs to out there as opposed to the conspiracy theory drivel that just makes us all look crazy.

    hmm, maybe the folks at the NRA should have brought him to the press conference....

    Imagine that - a self-proclaimed leftist (he didn't say 'liberal') with an open mind. What a breath of fresh air!
