Quotation for Today: What a Misfire!

The quotation for today aims our front sights on the nation's practice of making the innocent victim the subject of debate (e.g., his dress, in the wrong place, school records, etc.) in a gun-caused killing versus the gun and the shooter. What a misfire!
"Whenever there is a terrible shooting incident somewhere in America, our politicians talk about everything except whether the tragedy could have been avoided if the gunman had not been allowed to carry a firearm.
"You would think that this would be a great time to address the question of handgun proliferation, but it has hardly come up in Washington at all."

Florida, the Gunshine State (a borrowed term), seems to be intensely free with its gun permits. Moreover, the Gunshine State is quickly becoming the new, legislative-approved killing field for the United States.
