Ms. Parker, remember, they will "never let a good crisis go to waste". This administration's rush to judgement has been demonstrated repeatedly starting with the 'cops acted stupidly' when Obamass's professor buddy was arrested, to stopping oil production in the Gulf, to the current rush for gun control after Newtown. What surprises me is that the 'prez' hasn't banned cars yet, since hundreds have died on the highways since Newtown. Of course this would make his union buds unhappy and it doesn't fit his political agenda, so it won't happen. Wise up, America....your Constitutional freedoms are disappearing faster than the taxes redistributed from your paycheck.

Difficulty in getting change in our country is an ongoing source of frustration. Particularly when we have huge problems facing us as we do today.

But the founders knew what they were doing setting up the checks and balances of our constitutional republic. The delicate arrangement we call freedom should never submit with ease to a charismatic demagogue or to an emotion filled crisis.

The current push for gun control is case and point. It is at a time like this that we should be grateful that changing our laws is hard to do.

Every normal and decent American wants to...
