    Let alone banning, Americans don't even want to RESTRICT weapons and check their proliferation. An attempt to restrict (albeit half-heated attempt_ to restrict arms during Barack Obama regime fell through in the Republican senate. And massacres have been going on merrily

    The NRA can do what it does because politicians support it. Politicians have the power to vote down gun control because we, the people, give them that power. It's time to stop blaming politicians and take a good look at the voters.

    Every time we go to the polls, we vote for what we value most. As voters, we get to choose between the lives of children and the freedom to purchase arms without background checks. So far, voters are choosing their rights over children's lives.

    The USS is embedded in the cowboys m' Injuns mentality, Ut is the pedestal in which it is frozen as a statue. The fear of the other keeps haunting it. So is it surprising that people vote for guns and not roses?
