    Oh, the irony. Bloomburg Press says gun control is not liked.

    http://www.businessweek.com/magazine...-01052012.html

    And the headline: Gun Control: A Movement Without Followers

    More Americans favor Second Amendment rights, and lower murder rates in big cities convince some that tough laws are unnecessary

    I'm not going to say anything more except it's a wonderful 2-page read. Made better by where it was printed.

    stay safe.

    Thanks for the link to the article. I hope that it is echoed in the Wisconsin media and inspire WAVE to break.

    Even the NRA agrees, for example, that guns should not be sold to people found to have serious mental problems. Yet many states fail to provide mental health records to the federal computerized background-check system.

    I wish reporters would a) do their research and b) report accurately!

    States cannot provide any health records because those documents are privileged to the patient. Merely seeing a doctor isn't proof of any disability, or a reason to infringe a right. After all, people with epilepsy are allowed to vote, even though they're sometimes not in their right minds. And heck, they're allowed to possess firearms! How's that for dangerous?

    What can be & is made available are court records for involuntary commitments & findings of "not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect". That's a much higher standard, & is more or less a public record.

    they need to adapt to meet the demands of a public that wants to reduce the number of crimes—not the number of guns
