"And how can conservatives work themselves into a paranoid lather over minor regulatory adjustments" please point out the meaningless regulatoy adjustment that saved a life this week Moving a mountain in your path with one insignificant regulation at a time says infringment each and every time The same people that send weapons to Mexico drug gangs that are used to kill our citizens and lie and cover up, they are the criminals telling WE the People to give up ours You say we should not be passionate, this is what I read in your column The end result of this no gun give it up take it away crowd is a dead end street with only a few minor regulation 22,000 + laws on gun regulation, ah just a few more will make it all better Right?

The Great Gun Debate shows American political discourse at its irrational worst; with both left and right promoting panic and hysteria that distracts attention from the nation’s truly menacing problems. Instead of addressing crushing deficits, economic stagnation, political gridlock, and the erosion of middle-class security, politicians and pundits obsess over gun violence—one of the few challenges where the United States has made dramatic progress in recent years.

How can the president and his supporters work themselves into a self-righteous lather over minor regulatory adjustments that have been tried before with no measurable impact on the rate of firearms...
