    Mods: I've written about the quotidian quality of these threads, and how that should be considered unique content. If you decide to merge them, I am fine with that decision. But for now I'll continue to post our daily gun violence. The point of the thread is not "there is still gun violence." It is "look at what has happened in a single one-day (or rarely two-day) span."

    Daily Kos: Another day in the (gun crazy) U.S.A.

    A couple of choice nuggets:

    Total people shot in this non-comprehensive roundup: 31
    Total gun killings: 17
    Total defensive uses: 0, although one unarmed man was shot while surprising burglars

    A couple more from around the Web...

    Police say Ala. pastor killed wife, wounded his daughter | TuscaloosaNews.com

    If you've ever defended guns by saying "hey you'd just stab 'em..." this is your story.

    Do we think Pastor Greer bought his gun planning to shoot his wife to death, or for "self defense?"

    Do we think Pastor Greer, had he been able to keep his weapon, would have had a better chance of killing himself, versus his feckless stabbing attempts?

    1 Arrested, Accused Of Shooting His Younger Brother 2 Times | NBC 4i

    I wonder if Nathaniel bought his gun intending to shoot his brother? Or maybe he "exercised his right" to "protect himself..." and then decided that he'd shoot his brother with it instead.

    Two kitchen knives were found next to his body. The wife met the cops with alcohol on her breath. The wife's lawyered up and is refusing to speak to police further, and is being held without bond.

    The family that slays together stays together, I suppose.

    I have found that when an idividual constantly shoves a political topic down your throat...that over time it becomes detrimental to the individuals cause

    With the truth of the matter being considered "shoving a viewpoint down your throat," I suppose the best thing you can do is ignore the truth.

    It would be a pity, however, unless you're a no-questions-asked gun fan to begin with.

    So, ignore the threads if you like. Everybody has that choice. They don't if I don't post them.

    And most of them support common-sense gun control measures.

    Common sense as defined by who? 20k gun laws on the books, lets add more.

    Ohhhhhh your problem is how many laws there are? I can cure everything that ails ya. You want to replace them all with one Federal law?

    Hell, you can just replace them with 4 words: thou shalt not kill.

    But regurgitating a rando number -- or did you count all "20,000"? -- is only so convincing, when the laws we have vary not only by state but by locality.

    As they stand, they're "20,000" shades of inadequate, as our daily slaughter illustrates.

    Lets talk about one. Background checks. Are they common sense?
