Will this make any positive difference:


Maine shootings: Democrat reverses course on assault weapons ban
wrote:
One of the few remaining Democratic congressman opposed to sweeping gun control measures has abruptly reversed course after a mass shooting in his Maine constituency...

... He represents a largely rural district that twice voted for Donald Trump...

... "The time has now come for me to take responsibility for this failure," he said at a news conference.

"Which is why I now call on the United States Congress to ban assault rifles like the one used by the sick perpetrator of this mass killing in my hometown."...



For some deadpan yet very good positive comment for what can be done next, see:

Stephen Colbert - Mainers Have Moxie



Time to take account?...

Only in the USA...

581 mass shootings and still counting.

Days after a mass shooting rocked Maine, weekend shootings in multiple cities left at least 12 people dead and dozens wounded.

Will this madness ever end?

No, not as long as the right wing endorses American exceptionalism,

Meanwhile, a deadly story of other extreemists with guns:


As the NRA fades, a more zealous US pro-gun group rises as a lobbying power
wrote:
Gun Owners of America, formed in belief NRA was ‘too liberal’, spent $3.3m lobbying against gun control and boasts 2m members...

... The GOA is an adamant enemy of gun control measures of all stripes, and proudly calls itself the “no compromise” gun lobby. Its surge in lobbying spending reflects one way it has capitalized on the financial and legal problems of the once 5 million-member NRA ...

“The GOA was formed in the 1970s because they believed the NRA was too liberal,”...



Death by guns in the USA...

Stay safe?...

Mmmm... Why is Hawaii an outlier?
