1. My prediction:

3. That's not the solution of course, but security can surely be improved.

Of course, there's no money for that.

2. Guns don't kill people, sons do. - The NRA, lobbying to bring more death and sadness to families.

Guns don't kill people, sons do.
- The NRA, lobbying to bring more death and sadness to America's families at the taxpayers' expense* is our business.

(*Taxpayers expenses include but are not limited to: police hours, prosecutor hours, government vehicles and insurance, gas, vehicle repairs, prison food, prison clothes, chains, water, court costs, judges salaries, district attorney pay, prison heat & electric, other court employees, jailer costs, court heating & electric, public defenders, hospitalization, welfare to victim's families, property liability insurance, coroner fees, cremation fees and other associated costs relating to gun crime.)


Only CRIMINALS shoot people illegally with guns. Legal gun owners aren't actually DEFINED as criminals UNTIL they shoot someone.. Could be anyone.
