Support for stricter gun control remains constant according to a new Quinnipiac poll. It found 53 percent of Americans would support stricter gun control laws, while only 43 percent would oppose this change. The level of support for stricter gun control was effectively unchanged over the past few months.

Remember the early faux outrages of the Obama Administration when DHS nixed a study of right-wing terror groups because “there just is no such thing”?
Apparently, just like the slaughter at the Wisconsin Sikh Temple this did not actually happen then…

Much of the gun violence in America goes unnoticed. Individual victims receive a brief mention on the evening news, and a small story on the bottom fold of the local rag’s front page, unless they’re in a major metropolitan area. Then the victim is lucky to get a mention on page 2 of the local section. Many times these victims are young and poor, and often they are African-American or Hispanic. Our media doesn’t care about these folks, and the world moves on, never having known who or what its lost.

In short, dear reader, the rest of the modern world seems to be either smarter than the United States of America, or these other nations have much smaller gun lobbies.

This week I’d like to examine one of the central issues that finds its way into any gun control conversation – accessibility and availability.

In a video that was designed to go live around the time of President Obama’s State Of the Union, the NRA asserted that the ultimate goal of the Obama Administration’s gun control policies was to confiscate guns.

Well, compare and contrast amongst the invitees to Tonight’s State of the Union.

At first glance it seemed excessive, even for the LAPD. Heavily armed protective details – on the look-out for a fugitive cop killer bent on revenge – unleashed a barrage of bullets on not just one, not two, but three innocent civilians in two separate incidents. The fact that the civilians were female, and could not possibly have been mistaken for the big, black, burly male suspect, has to have raised concern among Los Angelenos, particularly if they drive a blue pickup truck.
