    No doubt everyone has watched the news today of another school shooting. I know we have discussed the gun culture and laws ad infinitum in this website during prior school shootings, and I can't see that we changed anyone's minds. However, I thought I would raise the topic again for no other reason that it is reported that this is the 87th school shooting since Sandy Hook.

    Does anyone care?

    The NRA still rules.

    I honestly don't know what it will take for people to wake up anymore. Eighty-seven school shootings in just a few years. It should make people sick, but so many millions of people in this country are brainwashed by the NRA that I just don't see anything happening for quite some time. If Sandy Hook didn't wake us up, I just don't know what will.

    Then Senator Obama was right when he committed the 'gaffe' of saying that so many people in this country cling to their guns and religion. Our response to tragedies like Sandy Hook and the 87 other school shootings since has been to pass 'guns everywhere' laws and arm ourselves to the teeth. He's unfortunately been proven correct that we have an almost cult like fascination with guns compared to pretty much every other civilized country.

    You have to be 18 to smoke in this country. Twenty-one to drink. But an infant can own a gun in thirty states. How in the world have we come to this as a country? I honestly don't get it.

    It's a disgrace for sure, but the biggest disgrace is the Second Amendment with the NRA coming up a close second. I'll never live long enough to see it changed but I hope that you will!

    I've said enough about that; why don't we sent 9 year olds to fight ISIS? they are very well trained by that age, uhhmmmmm.
