    Thumbs up Somebody in "the Media" Gets It

    A cogent article on the futility of gun control in BusinessWeek.
    http://www.businessweek.com/articles...on-gun-control

    Conclusion: going after the guns won't work. We have to go after the crazies.

    Duh.
    Guns don't kill people. Drivers on cell phones do.
