See what I mean? The Hawkeye Show. Not one word on the freaking topic!
The reason the shooting means something to me is that shooting happened while I was up in Springfield. Enjoying wonderful Oregon. Roseburg is 100 miles and 100 years away from Springfield/Eugene area. Roseburg's county Sheriff is a birther, denier of school shootings, Sept 11, etc. His youtube rants are off the charts for outrageous and often stupid funny stuff. So I care. I want to move to Sprindfiels ASAP. The mixture of extreme left and extreme right makes me excited and cautious.
Don't get me wrong. I'd have no problem with me or certain others in legal possession of a full rock'nroll M-16. Its the fact too many of them end up in the hands of psychos everyone claims after HE (ALWAYSALWATSALWAYS a he who looks just like you and me) shoots up a bunch of people that everyone else says they don't why anyone would have armed that particular white guy.
Permits, background checks, if you have any sort of restraining order the cops get to hold onto your weapons until it gets sorted out. Liability insurance, say $1,000,000 for gun ... er .... "accidents/incidents"?
Lots of nations have a higher ratio of ownership of automatic weapons but also have a significantly lower rate of homicide- Switzerland, Canada and Israel come to mind.
Somethings got to give. I don't want to do it like Australia, but Sally IS going to school.......
