    Believe you are right bowhunterrichard. No one in Washington is listening. They're all too busy running to the microphones to hear themselves talk. Scrolled thru tv yesterday and on CNN they had 10 commentators at once. 10! All fighting to say to say a few words already said by someone else. Sadness.

    I agree with your comment and stand Dewman, however there will never be a rational discussion concerning guns in America. There is too much ignorance by the opposition concerning the issue. Their argument is strictly based on the fact that ONE more gun control law will be the answer to all gun related issues ! There is no middle ground between the two opposing sides, and with the slide towards liberalism (and socialism) in this country, that should scare the hell out of most of us. Our first amendment has been butchered by PC, and I see no reason to expect that the 2nd has any better chance to survive as it was originally intended and written !! The major problem is, and will remain, you can not fix stupid !

    They listed the supressor along with the high cap magazine as "enhancements" that somehow contributed to the carnage. The very next clip is an interviewed person who said they all heard the gunfire from " ACROSS THE STREET" The responding police also cited the fact that as they arrived on scene they converged on the "SOUND OF GUNFIRE". The myth of the silencer needs to be highlighted and put into the context of fact.
    Also it appears to be a gun free zone where the victims were left to be harmless sheep to be slaughtered with no way to fight back.
    Rational discussion? Watch the California Dems at their convention and you tell me.

    Unfortunately, that's a fantasy, it will never happen.

    Americans are fascinated with tragedy and the news media knows that bad news sells. Also, the anti-gun groups want as much information out as possible in order to force a political result from the deaths.

    The use of a suppressor was unusual. The Hearing Safety Act will probably never be passed.

    Thus far, there has been very little mention of the shooter's name, which is a good thing.
    The focus of the news reports has been on the names and pictures of the victims.

    started a topic Virginia Beach shooting.

    Virginia Beach shooting.

    As the FBI is searching for a motive, it would be nice to eliminate, or at least minimize, the publicity for these copy-cat shootings, without infringing on any First Amendment rights.
    Baseball game broadcasters voluntarily refrain from televising fans running out onto the field, and those stunts have now become a thing of the past.

Welcome!
