    wtf is up w/ that?
    I think it was just big cuts in funding that made research hard, not a ban on the study.

    And then Obama said the law should get tougher on people who buy guns with the purpose of selling them to criminals.

    The government is not held to the same standards as the people are.

    Universal background checks--this essentially ends private sales no?

    Wouldn't have stopped Sandy Hook--the guns were his mother's and she passed her background check with flying colors.

    Assault weapons ban--quoting Regan is always a powerful way to stick it to gunhawks.

    All in all, using children as a shameless emotional appeal really does sicken me. Preach your recommendations on merit, Mr. President.

    That was precisely my thought.

    When I read:

    In order to prevent and respond to gun violence, we must give law enforcement every tool they need to keep us safe. That includes passing stronger laws to stop those who would put guns into the hands of criminals, keeping 15,000 cops on the street, and eliminating restrictions that keep federal law enforcement from doing its job....
    All I could think was:

    Tea Party Occupied Congress banned studying gun violence, because they know it would result in the conclusion that we must restrict gun ownership.

    It's not a disease.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
