Years ago, nightly network news shows ended each broadcast with a

count of the days Iran had held American hostages. What if nightly network news shows started ending each broadcast with a running count of Americans killed by guns since Newtown, maybe with photos of that day's victims?

2. that is a great idea and

 

and wasn't Nightline started and
it was a daily day count in the hostage drama?

same thing could be done

day 60 since CT 1298 people have been killed, 7299 wounded (random number)

5. It wasn't called Nightline back then

It was "America Held Hostage". Certainly did nothing for Jimmy Carter's chances of being re-elected.

6. of course, that isn't the point but in process, there is victory

 

this would devestate the republican party so revenge would be sweet

Who will be the last child slain by a gun and a bullet and a gun murderer?

If 35% of the gun crime is in the big cities, then 65% of the crimes is guess where-right in the stereotypical heartland of America

it's easy to rid the streets of the big cities of crimes
once the legal guns in the heartlandia are gone

Put a ring around it and eradicate it like the swine flu it is
