Thread Name: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
Subject: RE: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
If you want a clear, eloquent view on what it means to lose a child and opinions on what should be done, watch Rachael Maddow's interview (3 segments on right hand column) with the parents of one of the kids who died at Sandy Hook. They are sane, careful and honest.... and they plead with everyone not to stop talking about the issue.
Making reasonable decisions will not be easy in a polarized country, but with all the recent events, we MUST NOT let the debate trail off into nothingness---like the NRA would prefer.
Also... the Current TV channel, which is living on borrowed time after being sold to Al-Jazera, has had several interviews(on The Young Turks show) with Alex Jones, a radio host who is about twice as vehement as Wayne LaPierre. Jones specifically asserts that guns are necessary to defend against tyrannical government, and expounds on several conspiracy theories... (expounds is the gentle word... Jones raves and threatens)
Google Alex Jones and be astounded.
