But it's funny and immensely satisfying if you detest the man. Nothing says 'STFU & GTFO!' like a cattle prod to the stomach and being bundled off in a black police van.

I was worried at first after the school massacre that the NRA would come up with a limp wristed proposal that would "satisfy" the gun lovers of America to the point where it was acceptable......
But since they have dug their heels in so hard, so very hard, where they will NOT accept ANY reforms at all I hold hope that even some of them will realise how unacceptable and counterproductive that is. As anyone will tell you.. if you arent willing to make any compromise then you may have to accept the terms of the other party completely. Now they really DO come off sounding like a rabble of ratbags. So thats good in some sense. Fingers crossed.
The problem is, that rabble has too much support. The Americans have a love affair with guns, of the sadomasochistic type. They bang on and on about their personal rights and freedoms, never the rights of other peoples and their own responsibilities. This is the sort of mindset only brain surgery would cure. Like a transorbital lobotomy.
BTW, there's been another shooting in the US. Head's up...
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
