Another School Shooting: Why?

The Northern Illinois University Shooting should put gun control back into the U.S. political discussion, but both parties ignore the problem of guns and pander to the gun nuts, the NRA, and the gun lobby.

Steve Kazmierczak, the shooter who killed at least 6 people at North Illinois University, used the same website as the Virginia Tech shooter, Seung-Hui who purchased a gun to kill 32 people at that school.

Gun violence and mass kills are almost daily news:

Virginia Tech, the Omaha mall shooting, Colorado church shooting, the Missouri City Hall shooting, as well as the three other school shootings — in the last week — in Louisiana, Tennessee, and California

Also, this week: In an apparent hate crime, a Gay Teen Shot in the Head, Declared Brain Dead
Why is it so easy for people, even people with mental problems, to buy handguns and assault weapons in the U.S.? Why won't our political leaders, especially the so-called "progressive" ones, stand up to the NRA and gun lobby?
