"Gun Control" and "Pro-life" issue? You gotta be kidding me.

ok, but why? Jesuits aren't chumps. What's your argument?

OK, you have a point. I looked at it, read most of it, and in essence I agree since I am also for gun control. He is right, gun control is about respect for human life.

My S.O. was educated by Jesuits. They are pretty cool, for the most part.

But wait! If we were Catholic in colonial America, we wouldn't be allowed to own guns.

This morning, when I took my children to school, there was a guard at the gate for the first time.  Obviously, the school intended it as a thoughtful gesture for anxious mothers.

But that's the point.  Most of the "solutions" being touted offer only a false sense of security.  To that point, Ron Fournier had a compelling piece in today's National Journal, titled "What If Nothing or Nobody is to Blame for Adam Lanza?"  Fournier writes:

What if there is nothing or nobody to blame? Would that make this inexplicable horror unbearable?

What if we didn't rush to judgement?...
