Piers Morgan Can't Take It Anymore, and Neither Should We

Call them out, always, every day. Don't stop. Piers Morgan gets right to it:

Call them out always, never stop. Don't vote for anyone who can't help control guns. You know, six, eight years ago, gays seemed like, well, out in the wilderness. Now, not so much. Things are changing. Believe in human rights, believe in the coming gun control laws. The southern white man is having his ranks thinned. Not soon enough.

BTW, my stance on guns.

Update. Paul Krugman gets it right.

Update 2. Adam Lanza's mother was a gun enthusiast. Right. Guns don't kill people, the sons of gun enthusiasts kill people.

Update 3. These people will never grow up to be gun enthusiasts. Because, well, they're dead:


Update 4. If you own a gun for protection, it increases, not decreases, your chance of being shot. Talking Points Memo says:
Most of us are aware of studies that show that having a firearm in the home increases rather than decreases your chance of violent injury or death — usually through accidents or suicide. I was not aware of this peer-reviewed 2009 study by the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine study which concluded that people in possession of a gun were 4.5 times more likely to be shot during an assault than those who didn’t have a firearm.
Let's all get some more guns so we can be safe.

Atrios, as usual, gets pithy.

Update 5. Diane Feinstein decides to lead on an assault weapons ban -- passed in the Clinton years and expired in the Bush years. It's a good first step. Now, let's see how the Republicans react. Filibuster, anyone?
