Ennuipoet: Kiss ass.

That's more than kissing...and that's no ass.

The Mayans weren't bad at math. Americans are just stupid. Then they exported a lot of that stupid to the rest of the world.

So, we're calling tits and alcohol "popular culture" now?

Nearly 3,000 children and teens are killed by gunfire, every year.

And how many of them were involved in some sort of illegal a/o violent activity at the time? If we want to have a national debate on guns, fine with me. However it needs to be an honest one. A six year old getting shot in kindergarten is a tragedy, zero question about that. However a 19 year old, (who's already been arrested a dozen or more times) who manages to get shot while holding up a gas station generally isn't a tragedy. True, he may still be a 'teenager' (something that will loudly be trumpeted by those who want to pad their statistics) but society may actually be a bit safer with him getting shot.

A few years ago it was pointed out that more children drown in 5 gallon buckets every year than are killed in genuine firearm accidents (including what I would consider negligent rather than accidental - the idiotic kids playing around with a gun & "it suddenly went off...." - no, you pulled the trigger somehow). If that is the case, & according to the government provided statistics it is, I'd put forth that there really isn't a need for draconian new laws (laws that tend to ONLY punish the law abiding person when all is said & done) nor for the other end of the idiocy spectrum, putting essentially a SWAT team in every one of the roughly 140,000 schools in the country for an event that over the past 30 years has happened to one of them once every three months.

An honest debate/dialog between people & those who want to paper the land in new laws would be nice. Sadly I don't see it happening though. It is much easier for politicians to get press/soundbites on tv with emotional rhetoric that has no basis in fact nor reality than pointing out that what everyone is freaking out over happens about as often as someone winning a really big lottery. With a nation of 300,000,000 people something bad is likely to happen to someone tomorrow (be it being run over by a drunk driver, house burning down, stabbed in a mugging, or yes, even shot by some random stranger). However the odds of it happening to you in particular are so small that it really isn't worth getting worked up over.
