While great for a laugh, this excerpt from the Colbert Report illustrates how the political rumor mill stretches and contorts real world actions into messages that create fears in the general public that don’t actually exist.

Gun Control: Where do our priorities lie? [Repost]

Once again the nation faces yet another mass shooting incident, this time leaving 20 elementary school children dead in small town Connecticut. This tragic even marks the 18th mass shooting this year alone resulting in the deaths of 99 people and the injury of 92 others. This, of course, only accounts for the nationally reported events, not the multitude of other shooting deaths that occur daily in our own cities and towns.

In the wake of such disturbing events as these we must ask ourselves, “When will be okay to talk about gun control?” When will the taboo of this issue be broken? So few have the conviction and courage to speak out, to say what needs to be said instead of sinking into the sidelines afraid of the controversy. Bob Costas should be applauded for his remarks after the Kansas City Chiefs murder-suicide. Instead he was lambasted for daring to speak of control.
