gun violence

7 kids under the age of 15 were shot to death in Atlanta last week- times 4 = 28- times 12 =.....well my message is yes the gun violence has to stop. How can slaughter like this and in Newtown be stopped with 300 million privately owned and/or stolen and illegal guns in our society? It almost seems like it's impossible. That's just my take.


ignore people who might be offended at your word choice explaining your righteous rage. Maybe they are christians or something and I agree with your rage and choice of words. This has to stop somehow. I don't know how, short of outright immediate ban on weapon sales which is not feasible with three hundred million guns floating around out there. And how many criminals own part of that three hundred million? I'd hate to be weaponless in a dangerous society. No one has the right to harm me because they want to rob me or might hate the melanin in my skin and on and on....this is a vicious, dangerous country/world. So what's the answer.? Anyone?


are we, as a nation, ever going to move our thinking into 21st century mode? Our current administrations Justice Department(Holder I guess) is weighing whether to apply legal sanctions to the states(washington-colorado)that legalized personal use of marijuana. This line of thinking by the administration shows just how hamstrung we are with some laws that have no basis in reality. If a person grows a little marijuana for personal use and that's it. The government should go find some wrong doing on wall street, oh sorry, they did that already and bailed out the banks with billions of dollars. Is it a money thing? I just don't understand draconian thought processes and actions. If people are not harming anyone, leave people alone!
