I haven't read much more than the first few posts but feel you hit the nail on the head here. All the talk of gun control legislation is missing the point. As a nation we do a piss poor job with regards to mental illness. This kid was severely mentally ill in my opinion to be able to go into a school and start shooting little kids. Connecticut has some of the most strict gun laws in the nation and this still happened. So short of an all out ban on all guns whatever legislation Feinstein proposes isn't going to make a bit of difference.

French writer Alexis de Tocqueville warned about when visiting this fledgling democracy in the early 19th century – that this "American republic will endure until politicians realize they can bribe the people with their own money."
