I just heard that the guy who killed two firemen and wounded two others used the same type of rifle that killed the children and adults at Newtown. Oh, and he had previously served 17 years for manslaughter.
I was thinking why not simplify the discussion of gun violence to an acceptable number of people killed annually by guns in this nation? The people involved in such a discussion should be limited to those organizations that oppose any changes to the Second Amendment. They can't be members of fringe groups, but rational spokesmen for recognized organizations such as the NRA, etc. The topic should be limited to an absolute number. No other topics or nuances. No suggestions to stop the killing, just a number of corpses that are tolerable.
