Not Again: VA Tech Massacre (Stop the NRA!)

It's happened again, each time the death toll gets higher. Over 30 people killed in the VA Tech Massacre. How many more will die needlessly before our political "leaders" (Democrats and Republicans) stand up to the NRA and the gun lobby that funds them and profits from the culture of guns and violence? When will our media (movies, music,video games, etc.) quit glorifying guns and violence? The NRA is little more than the lobbying arm of the gun industry. It pays politicians, mostly Republican, millions of dollars a year to stop or weaken meaningful gun laws. The groups opposing the NRA have dwindled down to ONE: Handgun Control which is now under the umbrella of the Brady Campaign to Stop Gun Violence Go there for more information on gun violence, the gun lobby, the myth of the Second Amendment, and to join and get involved with the campaign to STOP THE NRA! If you haven't seen it yet, or even if you have, now would be a good time to buy or rent Michael Moore's excellent film on gun violence in the U.S. : Bowling for Columbine No, the problem is not JUST guns and gun control. We have to deal with cultural and mental health issues, but the lack of sensible gun control is part of the problem.
