Here is President Obama's 23 executive actions on endemic gun violence:
but I can save you a lot of time with my one executive action to end endemic gun violence: repeal the Second Amendment. Now, see. Wasn't that easy?
I'm keeping score on how many of these actions will come to fruition. I don't expect much because the House of Representatives is owned by the gun lobby, the Senate can't get anything done because of its arcane rules and Scalia's Supremes think corporations are human beings.
The gun nuts want to keep their weapons because they think they can stop the United States Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy and Coast Guard from taking over this country in the name of some Washington despot. They're suffering from delusions of grandeur at best, and mental illness at worst. In fact, I think the American Psychiatric Association should declare Lapierre Syndrome a mental disorder.
