According to the Mayan calendar, Friday is only the end of the Mayan calendar. It's according to some dishonest profiteers that the world will end on December 21st.

Are we not attacking a symptom of a greater problem by instituting more gun control laws rather than enforcing those that already exist? Isn’t the real underlying problem income and wealth inequality and shouldn’t we put all our energy into solving that problem rather and chasing the issue du jour?

It's an issue de touts les jours, David. People are killed with guns all the time. But when was the last time you heard of a mass stabbing? It's the guns. And the gun laws that exist have things like the gun show loophole. The law does, in fact, need to change.

This is a link to most of the school killing in China where guns are illegal. These are just for one year 2020 -2011 and are NOT all of them.

THEY ARE ALL DONE WITH AN EDGED WEAPON! Killers will Kill.

Guns are evil. Killing started with there invention (except maybe the 9 crusades) and will end with there elimination. More laws should be made for honest law abiding citizens (only them, because there really only the one's that pay any attention to them. Criminals and the mentally ill don't abide by laws) The government should be the only people aloud to have firearms because they have ONLY our best interests in mind, anyway regular people are far to stupid and irresponsible to be trusted with dangerous things. (Like: lawn mowers, flammable liquids, flammable gasses, automobiles, power tools, Poisons, sharp things, etc, etc, etc.) The only way we can insure our safety is make sure that there is a corresponding law for each of our dangers. But the government will consider permits for dangers in life. Permits WILL make it safe for our moronic citizens. And for our safety the government is also considering a law against stupid people. They are working on the wording now. by pete f.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

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 Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
