Politics in the morning--guns

If you would like a nice dose of heartbreak and rage this morning...

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2015/10/can-your-child-learn-to-defeat-a-school-shooter.html?mid=google&google_editors_picks=true

Since my kids left for school I have worried about a shooter. College looming up does not relieve my worries. I have also asked parents about house guns before little kid playdates. Questions were not always welcome. Probably you outside US have not had this level of worry.

I had a childhood friend die by playing with a loaded gun he found. I have had my son come home from a playdate to report a loaded gun in other kids room. And, as I have said before, I was shot myself.

I have watched otherwise acceptable candidates cave in over and over to the NRA... I am so angry, so tired, so afraid.
