    I wonder how many have died due to drunk driving….

    Holy shit… and I don’t even think that’s all of them! I don’t think they included the double-shooting in a Las Vegas casino that occurred the night after Sandy Hook. Took place in the Excalibur, and apparently a guy shot his girlfriend then himself, according to early reports.

    Lawrence O’Donnell, who I rarely watch, on his “Last Word” last night, was awesome with about a 16 minute response to Wayne LaPierre’s presser yesterday. Very powerful. I want to emphasize that I am not anti-NRA, I am pro-reforrm for limiting the magazines and assault rifles.
    I saw the replay this morning on Crooks and Liars of O’Donnell’s response.
    Interesting tidbit, and I am only citing O’Donnell here and looking earlier at a list of NRA leadership that LaPierre, John Bolton, Grover Norquist never served in the war (Vietnam) of their generation.
    I am not casting a wide brush here, just disgusted that when it was their time to serve, they chose not to serve their country. I am sure many NRA members did serve when it was their time.

    Americans don’t know what they cannot see. And, we like it that way.

    We don’t need suicide bombers in America. We have our own style of death machine…an armed populace.

    Think about this: this is one week. One week since Sandy Hook. We don’t have that many soldiers killed in Afghanistan in a week.

    The appalling truth is that we have degenerated into a combat zone.
