It's astonishing, and irresponsible, for These Days to suggest that a need for increased security for Congressional representatives and the tenor of political discourse are the only key issues to be discussed -- and refuse to raise the obvious, fundamental issue of our incomprehensibly weak gun control laws, and their reprehensibly weak enforcement.
If Congresswoman Giffords had been protected by better security, she *might* not have been shot. The other victims *might* not have been shot. If our national political discourse were calmer, more civil, they *might* not have been shot.
If the shooter had not had a gun, they would not have been shot. Period. As a nation, we have the power and the right to prevent gun violence.
