    Funny stuff!

    Of course, if I was related to any of the collateral damage, I might not think so.

    Truth should shape people's politics, rather than politics shaping what people think is true.

    If these supported criminals or mentally deranged people, I might not think so either.

    "[The Second Amendment] has been the subject of one of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the word 'fraud,' on the American public by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime."

    A super conservative judge.

    contrary to views espoused by gun groups, the Second Amendment “doesn’t guarantee the right to have firearms at all.”

    Burger again.

    There really are two sides to this issue. It is the zealots on each side of the spectrum that we have no progress in gun issues.

    The more I've researched this issue, the more I've found the sentiment laid out by Burger to be pretty close to the mark. The "original intent" of the amendment is fairly straightforward. And this obsession with firearms and their near unrestricted access is a relatively recent development. Firearms enthusiasts, like the old NRA, used to lobby for more regulation, not less, as recently as the 1960s and 1970s. But, now any an all proposals concerning gun regulations are dead letter. Conveniently for the gun industry and their lobbyists, theyve got a whole population of people who believe that the very things that would eat into their profits would lead to tyranny. When those beliefs are aligned then there can be no discussion on the issue.

    It seems the therapy is going to take a little longer for some of you. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you all.
