After all, the media has been making a valiant and concerted effort to avoid reporting on incidental stories involving gun violence in order to ensure a level-headed, rational debate about gun control. Kudos to the cable news networks for not peppering us with this 24/7. Thank GOD we haven't had to watch them interview all of the friends and family of this man and his children, hearing them talk about what a great and loving father he was and how there is no way he ever could have done this.
If they were to give this trivial little story that sort of attention, we might be tempted into more horrible legislation resulting from knee-jerk, emotional reactions.
Unlearning and self-teaching since 2008. Thanks, Dr. Paul!
