Are we ever going to read about anything other than gun control? Is anything going to get done in Washington? What about the economy? And what CAN be done about the deficit? What about jobs? Hello!???
As far as I am concerned, regarding gun control, that ship has sailed and is no longer seen on the horizon. America can NOT be disarmed. We are armed to the teeth and no amount of regulation is going to change the fact that guns are readily available to any person with the cash to purchase one or two or three or…..
What we should be focused on is the fact that the economy is extremely sluggish. Wages are not rising to meet the cost of inflation. Gas prices are escalating again. The price of food is soaring as is everything else. We need to be focused on the economy and not solely on gun control. Yes, mass shootings are horrible and tragic, but there is no way to control who is going to go off and when. It’s just not possible. We can only hope that it does not happen again. Meanwhile, all eyes are diverted from the economy. The continued beating of the ‘gun’ drum is effectively overshadowing what should be a focus on the stagnant economy and that we are losing ground on the job stats. The unemployment rate rose in January from 7.8% to 7.9%. Did we ever really make it out of the Great Recession? And has the ‘low unemployment rate ship’ sailed also? Does anyone in congress know what the hell they are doing or do they even care?
