I Just Don't Get It....

My husband returned home from running a few errands just after noon today, Sunday. He stopped into Gander Mountain in Turkey Creek here in West Knoxville for a minute or two. This store, for those of you unfamiliar with the name, is a huge sporting goods store catering to every type of leisure activity imaginable. Also, Turkey Creek is a mostly upscale "shopping experience."

The line for gun purchases was L O N G....and you had to take a number. He said he'd NEVER seen such a thing. I guess all the conservative Right Wingers had gotten home from church, and had eaten lunch.......or maybe they had finished watching the tele-evangelists on the local stations. Whatever.

What-in-the-name-of-cheese-and-crackers is WRONG with people? Twenty-seven people, most of them just babies in my mind, were recently killed in cold blood........and MORE GUNS is the answer???? On the morning talk shows gun laws were re-hashed and some sensible options were put on the least on Face The Nation  On another program David Gregory noted that 31 pro-gun Congressmen (Republican?) were asked to appear...but they all declined or "were unavailable for comments." Well, when you're on the wrong side of the question......or debacle......

Not a word from the National Rifle Association.
But THIS might interest you:

The time for national debate is NOW. The president MUST act. CONGRESS must act. WE must make them.

If some such tragedy occurred with one of the Congresspeople's kids or grandkids.......there would BE no can count on it!
