It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"
Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.
Now try addressing what I actually said:
"Banning guns in this country will only come about if more reasonable measures are not enacted to reduce the number of massacres in this country."
Responsible gun owners can either help implement measures that will help reduce massacres of innocent people or face broader gun control as our society evolves.
Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

"I used to roll the dice; see the fear in my enemies' eyes... listen as the crowd would sing, 'now the old king is dead, Long Live the King.'.."
We've got to focus on the problem, not the symptoms. If you are tired all the time, does it make sense for a doc to prescribe you cafiene pills, or to dig deeper to see what's causing the fatigue? Gun deaths are only a symptom.
And we need to do this quickly. We are fast approaching technologies that will be by their very nature accessible to all...fearsome indeed, if used to harm or kill. You're afraid of guns? I'm afraid of the future...
