In reply to Ralph Wiggum's points:
I presume, since you sent me no Moderation warning and that I can see nothing listed in this forum's rules that prevents the discussion of this running sore in the US body politic, that you were not wearing your Moderator hat; but merely voicing your own hopes that gun law was not once more discussed in the forum. That would seem to be somewhat forlorn in the light of two mass murderings of innocents in as many weeks.
That it is a problem is a given, problems are things to be discussed, sometimes with passion and yes heat, but more sensibly with well founded argument; that is after all the purpose of a forum.
Politics is after all about dealing with and discussing problems in order to find solutions, and not about sweeping them under the carpet. US Gun law and the dire effects of guns legaly bought by Nutjobs is clearly a problem, US citizens cannot in safety go to their place of worship or recieve an education or watch a film with their family without the threat of mass murder. Ergo it is a subject of political discussion. The regularity with which so many innocent men women and children are murdered with legaly sold and purchased firearms means the subject is bound to be discussed every time it happens.
As to your point about my knowledge of the subject, US Gun Law is a matter of public record and described in the laws of each state and on multiple sites by many parties.
The NRA -ILA carries them:
If that is too far right for you or too complex for you to understand, then the information is available on Wikipedia:
With links to the original sources for verification and more detailed inview.
As is obvious several states do not comply with the Brady Act and it is the stated aim of the NRA - ILA to remove and water down the Brady Act.
My point is that US Gun law, or rather the lack of it, is the biggest terrorist threat to America that exists, and it is only a matter of time before Al Qaeda uses that weekness in US defenses to commit an atrocity that would dwarf 9/11.
