In wake of Sandy Hook, it’s time for gun control

For years I’ve been tolerant of the people who argue against gun control. I’ve understood the constitutional argument, the argument that only criminals would have guns, the ability to protect yourself. But no longer. We’ve seen too many incidents like Sandy Hook. It’s time to act.

“With all the carnage from gun violence in our country, it’s still almost impossible to believe that a mass shooting in a kindergarten class could happen. It has come to that. Not even kindergarteners learning their ABC’s are safe. We heard after Columbine that it was too soon to talk about gun laws. We heard it after Virginia Tech. After Tucson and Aurora and Oak Creek. And now we are hearing it again. For every day we wait, 34 more people are murdered with guns. Today, many of them were five-year olds. President Obama rightly sent his heartfelt condolences to the families in Newtown. But the country needs him to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem. Calling for ‘meaningful action’ is not enough. We need immediate action. We have heard all the rhetoric before. What we have not seen is leadership – not from the White House and not from Congress. That must end today. This is a national tragedy and it demands a national response. My deepest sympathies are with the families of all those affected, and my determination to stop this madness is stronger than ever.”

    The old art of stealth in carp fishing seems
    to be as dead as the dodo on most carp waters today and it seems to
    me that the average carp angler is so manically driven to get in a swim set up and cast out they
    have no idea it is far better to think like
    the fish and not an angler first and truly give carp the respect they deserve that will
    guarantee to give them the catches their strive so manically for.

    Another important application of second law of thermodynamics is found in refrigerators and heat pumps, which are based on the principle of reversed
