With the crazed assault in Las Vegas that killed over 50 and wounded hundreds as only the most recent example, America's gun violence problem has reached a breaking point.

Thanks for placing some truth into C2 - I wish more people would read these stories. I like a bit of fluff myself to shake off the harsh realities of life, but we improve nothing unless we get our hands dirty and learn why we are in the mess we are in. These articles are extremely important - read one a day, not asking for much a full 20 minutes if that, depending on how long or short the article is.

Well it has been a breaking point to me a long time ago - and I thought after those first graders up in Conn were slaughtered at least most people would come to their senses. But no, money talks in this Nation so we now must debate whether we can at least get these parts that make a semi automatic weapon into a truly automatic weapon out of the hands of people.

Just a debate mind you - like pulling teeth - meanwhile the bodies pile up, more children grow up without parents and more parents lay their children into the ground while thousands more must deal mentally and physically with their injuries of that horrid day or night they survived through. Things like that just don't go away easily, it's life altering even if you somehow live through it.
