Tell me again....

Come on wing-nuts, tell me again that we don't need more effective gun control in this country.

Tell me that stricter gun laws wouldn't prevent YET another tragedy. You know what, I don't care if it wouldn't definitely stop it happening. If there's even a chance that it would...if there's a way to make it harder for this to happen AGAIN, then it's worth it to give it a try....and if that means that you might have to feel that your right to have 100 weapons in case one of those scary non-white people comes anywhere near you?

Guess what? I can live with your hurt feelings. The people in Wisconsin, right now they can't.

I can't not tell you how much I wish Keith Olbermann would be doing a Special Comment tomorrow night. The world needs his special brand of passionate outrage right now.

God I am so sorry. I am also wondering whether this has anything to do with the demonization of Islam in the last decade (I know that Sikhs aren't Muslims, but I'm not sure everyone does).

PS Italy is the second country in Europe for the number of Sikhs according to Wikipedia. Many of them are employed in the care of milk cows, especially the fancy Parmigiano Reggiano ones, a demanding job that leaves people stinking of cow dung. I am so thankful to them.

What's truly nauseating is the way the right wing in this country is already to embrace the Sikhs, just because they're NOT Moslems and are perceived to be in opposition to them. Also the fact that the shooter seems to have been a neo-Nazi and as far as the Conservatives are concerned that somehow means Liberal instead of being THEIR ideological soul mate. (They base that, in their delusional pea-brains on the misapprehension that the socialism in National Socialism has anything to do with actual socialism as espoused by Marx, Engels etc.

It's so horrible, and especially the response on the right.
