Here we go again.

I've been following an interesting thread on Facebook.  With the nation still reeling from the horrible situation in Colorado, gun enthusiasts have been quick to defend the sacred Second Amendment.

They're quick to point out that people kill people so it's not the gun's fault nor is it the fault of the millions of law abiding hunters and sport shooters.

This is true to an extent but the point that I believe is missed by many of these people is the simple fact that it is altogether too easy for guns to fall into the wrong hands.

Come on!  You mean to tell me it's OK for absolutely anyone to go to a gun show in, say, Texas or Alabama, pick out your weapon of choice, pay your money and  leave right then and there with it?

How can any reasonable person accept this?  Absurd.
