Attempting to convince millions of Americans not to own guns will not educate them on safe gun practices, just like talking abstinence will not educate people on safe sex practices.
Because apparently this tragic shooting did not involve enough victims, the news media gave it ho-hum coverage, I guess because this kind of mass murder is just so everyday, these days.
Why are seven U.S. Senators opening themselves up for such a big domestic backlash by siding with Iran, North Korea and Syria?
A law requiring Levi Reed's grandfather to store his gun safely might have saved Noah McGuire's life. Enough is enough. It is time for responsible citizens everywhere to stand up to the gun lobby and demand that politicians pass common sense gun safety and safe storage laws.

Until we become smart enough to recognize what other civilized countries have found -- that stricter gun control saves lives -- we're destined to repeat the tragedies of Newtown, Aurora, Tucson, and Virginia Tech again and again and again.
By migrating illegally, Ted Nugent is sticking it to Mexico by giving them a taste of their own medicine. Let's see how the Mexicans like it when Ted Nugent tunnels in under the border!
As the debate rages on and Congress continues to do nothing, perhaps we should use this time to reevaluate where people who turn murder weapons into a hobby fit into discussions of mental health.
