Having sown dissension, hatred and bias for several decades politicians are now crying "help" !
I'm sure all responsible gun owners decry events like the shooting of Gabby Gifford - just as we decry the assassination of Presidents Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, and JFK - but we're being maligned as perpetrators/conspirators when, in fact, we're victims ! Politicians - for personal aggrandizement and gain - have created ever smaller and more desperate racial/ethnic/political "blocs", they can manipulate. Not surprising some blocs/individuals react violently to their deliberate alienation. >MW
