Quick, Gun Control Before The Bodies Cool Off!

Well, that did not take long.  Dianne Feinstein and others rang the battle cry for gun control the day after the Navy Yard shooting that occurred Monday September 16th, 2013.  Of course, immediately there were media reports of the irrationally "scary" AR-15 being used.  Turns out the shooter took Joe Biden's advice and used a shotgun.  And, it is also being widely reported that the shooter was suffering from mental illness.

Is anyone else really surprised that the media and gun control advocates pounced on the idea that a AR-15 might have been used before letting the facts come out?  What a bunch of "malarkey" as Uncle Joe Biden would put it.  As if the AR-15 is any more dangerous than, case in point, a shotgun and a couple of pistols took off security guards.  

Dianne Feinstein mentioned that Congress has been shirking it's responsibility on gun violence.  Gun control and gun free zones don't work.  Face it.  You know what just might work?  Treating mentally ill people and reporting them into an already established background check system.  How about finally really focusing on mental illness?  Yeah, that couldn't be the solution at all...
