I'm concerened about this: "the shooters must be crazy" argument and the following " we need to do a better job of locking up our crazy people". While they may have very uncommon thoughts going on in their heads (mental illness) they are still able to reason. they don't go and attack police stations, national guard armories, the White House, etc. They go where the risk of resistance is almost guranteed to be nil: Schools, Malls, "Gun Free Zones" etc. In my opinion, that makes them less crazy and more criminal.

MSNBC's Martin Bashir suggested that Republican senators need to have a member of their families killed for them to support the Democrats' gun proposals. (Let's start with Meghan McCain!)

In a bizarre version of "A Christmas Carol," CNN's Carol Costello fantasized about "a mother who lost her child," showing up and knocking on Sen. Rand Paul's door, saying, "Please don't do this!"
