Yes, seems there'll be a push for New gun Regulation or at Least Assault weapons ban. This, just in time to add to 2012 social turmoil where our own officials (gop) vowed, to go against our (& their) President (can you say Treason? Sure ya can) ....on, and on, and on..... Now NRA front and center, all the gun toating blow hards who have two cents of courage and spend it on fleating egos, round & round we go, again and again. Really? how small of a member/constitution do you have to have to need 100 rounds of amo at the ready? ... course there's always the "finally" senerio *shutter*.

We have sensible gun laws. Banning guns doesn't prevent criminals from getting them, they aren't using legal means to aquire them anyways. As for the incident in Colorado even without firearms he could've killed and injured just as many people, explosives are easy to make and cars are incredibly dangerous when running into pedestrians.

I cannot understand why the NRA is running American politics.

We need to do with guns what we've done with cigarettes. We have to make guns items that we scorn. That we know are lethal, just as cigarettes are.

Hey, if you can get away with shooting a Congresswoman without any gun law changes, why would Congress change gun laws when pions are shot?

You mean "spur", not "spurn," right?

You must belong to a well regulated militia then, and you use muskets and other weapons that go back to the 18th century.

As for the theories put out by right wing talk show hosts that this is a conspiracy by the Obama administration to get people mad and push for more gun control, what about all the mass killings, etc. under Republican Presidents? Is Obama the only President in history here? What short, convenient memories they must have. They are so far out there, many need to be committed.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
