    You spoke of the 'culture' and said "I'm not sure the failure is the governments as their role is rather limited. Instead, a country fully in love with guns might have a cultural failure. I think there is enough evidence to question that if not answer it fully".

    I'm not sure how politicians posturing can have that much influence on the culture and you earlier said it is not the failure of governments, i.e. politicians.

    Who contributes more to the culture than Hollywood and the media in general?

    No, speaking of us as a people means nada. And if you love politicians you are a rarity. They rate very low on the scale of trustworthiness.

    In fact I have never heard of anyone 'loving' a politician, except in totalitarian countries or those of the Justin Beiber sort.. If that is truly the case intelligent Americans should be very concerned of those who elect politicians out of 'love'. That was probably the case with Obama though. There was no other reason than something along those lines.

    I think I was pretty clear. Culture demands this from them. The culture isn't influenced by them. We are the culture. Hollywood reflects it, not guide it. Politicians reflect it, not guide it. The media reflects it, not guide it. You're looking at it backwards.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Now that's some leap. No one sad or suggested I love politicians.

    I'm really not sure what you're reading.

    It doesn't say anything like what you seem to think it says.

    Perhaps then you can explain the difference between this

    Politicians posture because we love them and they know it plays well with us, the people.
    and this

    I have once already. The first comment had nothing to with politicians leading the way or causing ****. It had to do with them pandering to us, the gun nuts. It is not difficult. You stuck in a loop that is preventing you from grasping the point.

    This story never gained much traction, unfortunately. Handgun...black shooter...black victim...just...nothing to exploit here...time to move on...

    "A person of interest has been detained," said Major Armando Tello of the Harris County Sherrif's Department.

    Campus carry legislation filed in House

    AdrienneOReillyOklahomadirectorforStudentsforConcealedCarryonCampus3.jpg

    Freshman state Rep. Giovanni Capriglione, R-Southlake, filed a bill on Thursday that would allow concealed handgun license holders to carry weapons on college campuses.

    The measure is similar to a bill filed by state Sen. Brian Birdwell, R-Granbury, one week earlier. Campus carry has been a controversial topic for multiple sessions and has come back into the spotlight after an argument on a Lone Star College campus in North Houston on Monday led to gunfire and multiple injuries. For opponents of campus carry, the takeaway is that more guns lead to more harm on otherwise safe campuses. For supporters, such incidents are proof that current restrictions make those campuses havens for illegal gun use
