    Thumbs down TIME Magazine phones it in - and gets a wrong number.

    TIME Magazine phones it in - and gets a wrong number.

    Actually, they get a lot of numbers wrong. And yet the introduction shows so much promise of someone who might actually "get it".

    Possibly the only reason to read the editorial, or even click the link in the first place, is to see the very pretty graphic the art department came up with. I wonder if you could get that done in Cerakote?

    Go ahead, click the link and look at the pretty paint job.

    stay safe.

    After the ghastly act of terrorism against a Sikh temple in Wisconsin on Aug. 5, Americans are pondering how to stop gun violence. We have decided that it is, in the words of New York Times columnist David Brooks, a problem of psychology, not sociology. We are trying to fathom the evil ideology of Wade Michael Page. Only several weeks ago, we were all trying to understand the twisted psychology of James Holmes, the man who killed 12 innocents at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo. Before that it was the mania of Jared Loughner, who shot Congresswoman Gabby Giffords last year.
    Certainly we should try to identify such people and help treat and track them. But aside from the immense difficulty of such a task--there are millions of fanatical, crazy people, and very few turn into mass murderers--it misses the real problem.

    " I don't recall Will responding to, say, the 9/11 attacks--or any other law-and-order issue for that matter--with a "things happen" sentiment.

    And what does 9-11 have anything to do with handguns/rifles?

    But the number of firearm homicides is essentially unchanged. What can explain this anomaly except easier access to guns?
    Can the contradiction and false premise be discerned?

    How can an "intelligent" person honestly think that a criminal will obey any law? I refuse to believe that the gun control argument is about saving lives whatsoever. IMO anyone who uses their 1A right to call to restrict or denounce anyone else's rights should lose their 1A right forever.

    So, the dude pirated another reporter's article and they apologize. But they don't offer a link to said article? Their apology is weak.

    I'm surprised they didn't just sweep it under the rug and say it was just some racists who thought he stole material because we are racists.

    There were so many things wrong with that column that I wouldn't know where to start. Not to mention that one could write a multiple page report refuting all of the inaccuracies/falsehoods of it.

    Looks like I'll be thumbing through Home and Garden at the Dr's office from now on.
    It's better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it...
