YES! It will renew the public's push for more regulation.
NO! Congress has proven they’ve sided with the NRA on this.

No and isn't it ironic that we must insure our cars, homes and even have health insurance but not guns! Also, my city forbids citizens to own a pitbull (dog) as a pet because they are TOO dangerous. However, the same home can own 1,5,10 or more guns and nobody cares. Homeowners can not get the same premiums as the person that lives next door if they have a pitbull but if they have a poodle like their neighboor but have enough guns to fight in Syria, well that's OK. What has happened to common sense? Dog bite versus the Sandyhook rampage or the latest "if I can't have have it then you can't" spoiled brat mentality do the math.................. Unless it is the new common core it doesn't add up.

When my son was 6 years he was interviewed by a popular magazine. The question: What would you do if you had a million dollars Nicholas? His answer "Money is not my God!" Now, throughout history when humans are asked that same question, the response dictates the obvious; When money is your God, you will fail. The Heroes that started this country decided a differant response was the right way to go for all of our sake. What this country has become is the ages old answer, when money is your god you will fail. Every time! People have become narcasistic. Selfish. And Angry. Money is this countries god. And observe the result. The part of us that needs waking up is the reality that VERY few benefit from this tenet. And you know what else, when their 'jig is up' they will simply walk away and care not. Guns. Phones, It's always the same result, A few will make money then walk away. YOU AMERICANS ARE BEING DISTRACTED FOR ONE REASON ONLY to make a few rich. It's King & Queen time again!!! Benjamin Franklin would be ashamed.

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 - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and 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
