God, prayers and puerile platitudes are most definitely NOT GONNA fix this.

Just needs one or more courageous politico's or individuals to stare down these nutters and the ball to actually get legislation passed will start rolling properly.

It's gonna have to happen sooner or later.
Probably gonna be longer and harder than the struggle for civil rights.

What the hell is the matter with your politicians over there for Pete's sake?
JUST HOW DOES THE NRA exert so much influence?
Money?, lobbyists?, hand on heart homages to the constitution?

Hmmmm...interesting year 2016 coming up methinks.

lodestar makes it a point of personal honour and public policy never to engage his brain before opening his mouth.... an approach which to date has yielded brilliance, sheer brilliance.

Regards lodestar
Don't tell us that you didn't expect a collective response like that ?

You're a foreigner so what would you know about democratic rights ?

It's a different culture mate, and that's all there is to it. There's a doctor of my acquaintance who worked in the US for a time, including a stretch in the ER Dept of a hospital. One patient was wheeled in with a gunshot wound : our man was fascinated. he'd never seen one before and he mentioned this to his colleagues. They frankly didn't believe him and his wonderment was a source of much hilarity.

Well, you still bow to a Queen, so you've obviously not really grasped the concepts.

But I have grasped your concepts- obviously.
My comment was in no way a value judgement .I was just articulating the way things are through my doctor friend's bewilderment. There's no need to be defensive about it.

If you want to live in a country where the population is under constant control their are plenty to choose from. In the U.S. we prefer to allow as much liberty as possible and we accept the risks. Sure we could make it safer by confiscating all guns in private hands but just as it is dangerous to climb mountains some people think the risks are worth it. Live free or die is our motto.

That's an achievement. He hasn't posted a single thing ever that didn't collectively diminish anyone's intellect. What amazes me is that people continue to respond to him, some of them seriously.

He also rarely participates in his gun con-troll threads.

Wrong. That won't make things safer. That will only create more potential deaths. It won't work as you claim.
