Its in today's newspaper and all over the internet news I look at. The Irish President O'Bama thinks terrorism and gun violence are comparable.
Someone should take advantage of the topicalness (spell check doesn't think that is a word) of gun control and write a story about how it is done, or how it doesn't work, or possibly on how the future makes getting and keeping and having guns available when needed harder. Or not, perhaps a story on how vital having weapons around is or will be. Maybe everybody changes to swords when they can't get guns?
My theory is they don't need to control guns or who owns them. They need to control ammunition. They used to say guns don't kill people, people kill people. And justify getting guns like getting cars by requiring a license or permit or some other government issued paper, that needs money to the government be paid. Or possibly a bribe.
Guns don't kill people, unless you bayonet them. Bullets kill people. If you could only buy bullets at approved establishments, like liquor (or pot in Washington, Colorado, and now Portland, Oregon.)
How do we establish which establishments? There might be a story in that question.
I also want to mention the rhyming phrase I heard in the Army many years ago. "This is my rifle, that is my gun. One is a weapon, the other for fun." Unless you are in the Artillery where guns have very large caliber, its not a good idea to talk about your gun, unless you plan on using it on a female friend. I am not sure about the Navy, where one of the ranks/positions was gunner's mate. There might be a story about that title as well, if they put entertainers (female) on ships (spaceships?) so their gunners could mate.
