I don't buy your logic. Sorry, I just can't.

Think about Iran and the frenzy some on the right have about that country developing a nuclear weapon. It seems pretty duplicitous, to me, to fiercely clamor for bombs to drop on a foreign nation while the citizenry of the United States is being encouraged to engage in an arms race.

I was trying to be nice when I used the word "weird." Guns kill people. Drugs kill people, too, but they at least are monitored and regulated. I think gunowners should also be under some form of accountability. There are certainly enough dead victims to warrant greater control over the things.
