Gun Violence in America

Hosted by Cstar1

Americans' obsession with guns are killing us. Other countries don't have this problem, why do we insist on clinging to 19th century justice and neanderthal attitudes?

Apparently the NRA is upset because YouTube has banned videos of guns.

I say... Yay, YouTube!

The man's a convicted felon. Why would you pick him as your President?

Only 21% were ?unintentional??  Does that mean 79% were deliberate assaults?  

I'm glad you brought up this issue.  Some how we imagine that injuries don't matter.  I don't know the figures but many of those must result in permanent disfigurement or disability.  Does the center for disease control or other organization have an estimate of the cost of accidental gun injuries to the nation?

The NRA knows how to pick 'em.  Why Ollie North never went to prison is beyond me.  His role in Iran Contra needs to be re-opened if he is going to lead a national organization.  Can he answer for instance why he shredded mountains of documents just ahead of investigators?  Can he explain why Fawn Hall hid documents in her underwear to smuggle them out of his office to be destroyed?  How, if he was obeying Pres. Reagan to defy the will of congress and play international gun runner, could the Pres. claim not to have known anything about it?  How did North keep VP Bush out of the loop?  And all this time North had an office in the basement of the White House.

Most felons are forbidden from being around guns at all.  Only powerful friends with $$ fixed the court to have his convictions dropped.

All of this should be re-litigated in the press.
