Sorry for contributing to the thread veer, I deleted an earlier post that I made that was off topic.
Back on topic though, New Years Day I went into the local Wal-Mart and checked to see the state of their ammunition supply. I happened to over-hear two men discussing the Sandy Hook incident. Their references about and knowledge of mental health, prescription meds, etc sounded every bit as lame and uninformed as clips, assault guns, etc that some constantly chide the antis on.
My initial thought is that education is the answer, but I'm not sure how we'd accomplish that. Despite being in the information age, ignorance abounds on many topics and media sound bites, cliches and catch phrases still seem to rule the day.
