Ed Perlmutter: A Small Army. Bill Moyers: NRA Enablers of Death

Congressman Ed Perlmutter, D-Colo., who represents Aurora, said gun laws must be addressed, including the assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004. However, he said this is not an issue for the president but for the Congress:

You know, should we reinstate the assault weapons ban? I think we should, and I think that's where it starts. We ought to be taking a look at how this guy was able to accumulate so much ammunition. He had enough ammunition for, like, a small army. There's something wrong about that.

A small army? Guess I must have several small armies. Many of my friends must have thousands of small armies. I wonder if Ed Perlmutter wanted a small army to protect him when he was afraid to go to grocery stores for his constituent meetings for fear he might be shot? Yes, he even postponed a grocery store meeting out of fear.

Ignorance. Too much ignorance exists about firearms, ammunition, and the likes of Bill Moyer who claims the National Rifle Association is the "enabler of death" on taxpayer funded television:

Since when did it become wrong to protect yourself instead of always depending on the government to defend you?

Perlmutter and Moyers are both twits when it comes to the reality of firearms, weapons, ammunition and self defense.

The Colorado theater massacre last week is an example of mental illness, not guns.

    Mental illness is a broad definition that among other things, can describe a wide array of dysfunctional reasoning and the inability to follow a logical thought process all the way to a conclusion that does not induce unnecessary risk or harm to ones self or others.
    Unfortunately, there are many degrees and those that suffer from it do not have the ability to recognize the characteristics or effects as an affliction.
    In a most severe manifestation it can materialize as something tragic like the theater shooting.
    In a less initially severe case, it might present as something as innocuous seeming as the development of a set of rules intended to promote safety but that in all actuality make those it affects less safe.
