Your column is a downer during a time out in the world. The Olympics are the days of sporting events where the world puts aside its troubles and tries to act nice to everyone by competing in non-consequential ways. At the end everyone goes home feeling better for awhile. Eventually we carry on with our lives for better or for worse. Bringing politics into the Olympics is the last thing we want to do. You hate Russia? Stop watching the Olympics while the rest of us enjoy the civility of athletics for a short while.
ABC doesn't need to present stats on how guns save lives. They are doing a story on the safety (or lack of it) of guns when curious children are around. Even some of the parents were surprised that the kids knew where the guns were. I think the story was to show the need for keep guns locked up or at least secure from children finding them.
