Thread Name: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
Subject: RE: BS: Shooting tragedies and guns
I am pretty tired of the "you guys" and " American blind stupidity " generalizations from over the pond...
It is a conservative minority who are holding the rest of the country hostage!! Most Americans.. even the ones who own some guns strictly for hunting..etc.. do NOT support the radical NRA positions. Over 60% now WANT stricter laws.
We are quite aware that there are FAR too many radicals and guns! We are also aware that getting all the stupid forms of weapons back would be a HUGE problem. We must start from where we are, and Pres. Obama and Joe Biden are RIGHT NOW working on ways to take executive action that right-wing idiots in Congress can't block.
All the "you stupid idiots" posts from abroad are not only not helpful, they obscure the real debate...
please consider useful ideas, or get away from the broad-brush characterizations!
