All hope is lost. DU gun debate shows that America isn't ready for real reform. [View all]

I'm sickened each morning as I read the latest DU posts concerning gun control, or lack thereof, in America. The level of discourse shows that it would take a miracle to move the debate into the realm of thoughtful discourse required to reduce gun violence in our poor country. More innocents will die and the 30,000 dead each year of gunshots will increase even though the Newtown massacre brought attention as never before.

I suggest a good movie showing the young Adam blowing his way into the school and shooting the 26 in full graphic horror will be the best way to keep this issue which lacks any true thoughtfulness in the news enough to get something meaningful done.

Turn the whole thing over to the emotions.
