Hey, can we turn those swords to plowshares yet?

Yet another school shooting, yet another day in gun-crazy America. The land of the free where you can’t afford health insurance, but by-gawd you can get a weapon designed to kill as many people as possible in a short amount of time.

We’ll swap memes and arguments supporting our differing and varied views.  Someone will make the same point they always make, and someone will reply with the same reply they always give.  Nothing will change.  The NRA-style gun owners won’t support an ounce of regulation, for fear they’ll be personally affected.  Anti-gun politicians with an errant grasp of how firearms actually work will make all of us who support common-sense legislation look like buffoons.  And in a month, week, or maybe even a couple days, someone will walk to the corner gun store and buy an AR-15, then wait for their moment of attack.

And we’ll repeat the whole mess over again.  And nothing will change.  And it will happen again.  And again.  And again.
