Kudos to The Sun, Mr. Rodricks, WYPR and Mr. Webster for bringing forth this discussion, one that is rarely heard in our society, clearly because so many are afraid of the gun lobby or are themselves gun owners and oppose forms of gun control. People seem to tippy toe around this issue, but it is fairly clear why: fear. Fear of causing a stir, which always seems to outweigh in adult males any real commitment to getting something done about weapons in America, clearly the most weaponized culture in the world (and exporter of weapons to the rest of the world). To me, it adds up to a betrayal of normal humans who love life and like to live life to the end, let alone the poor Bambis killed in the woods. A betrayal pure and simple, an attack by adult American males upon women and children..
