No one wants to change the laws. The shootings continue, at a quickening pace. What episode will be the final straw to end the firearm fever? What person or persons has to die to make it happen? In my experience, many of my gun-totin' friends have a degree of dissociative issues, so they aren't interested, no matter how close to home the victim(s).
I don't have plans to own any firearms, so I will sit in my home office, listening to The Dead, waiting for my turn at the wheel.
