44 school shootings in the 14 months since Sandy Hook shook our collective conscience, sort of, kinda, maybe.
That’s aside from the 365 mass shootings in America in 2013. And the everyday non-mass shootings and accidental shootings – kids shooting kids, fathers shooting kids, self-inflicted wounds of stupid, gun cleaning accidents, etc.
But the NRA and the gun fetishists are working to expand gun rights. They will not brook any discussion of rational limits to gun rights – even for the mentally ill or suspected terrorists. They continue bravely to claim more guns are safer than less guns.
Maybe they’re right, guns don’t kill people, asshole gun owners kill people (and themselves).
