Most of the time, common sense is very uncommon. Politicians of all stripes at all levels are dancing on the graves of murdered children to further an agenda to add to the "solution" that has failed to yeild success time after time. The latest example is the young lady tragically killed in Chicago, but the drum-beat is fueld by the school killing in Newtown. Consider the following; A person steals guns, (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), shoots and kills his own mother (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), transports these guns loaded (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), brings guns onto school property (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), breaks into the school (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), discharges the weapons within city limits (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), murders 26 people (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW), and commits suicide (WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW). And there are people in this country that somehow think passing ANOTHER LAW banning guns would protect us from someone like this. If you haven't noticed, people like this are not concerned about breaking laws - they only care about fulfilling their own twisted agenda. Einstein said; "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
