Default Some clear thinking at CNN

Gun Control is Not the Answer, says columnist at CNN.

The writer probably did this one on the way out the door as a big one-finger salute to the comrades at CNN.

yep, watch them lose their job over this. The way of the left is freedom of speech for all (who say what they say), ban everyone else.

Finally, some common sense. Not that it will be heard by the liberals, but it's the first gun related story that hasn't made my head spin. Finally someone points out the gap in liberal logic that mass shootings and crazy people are separate from law abiding citizens. Whatever the circumstances of him writing this are, it's still kind of satisfying.

Polls show 2 persons watch CNN. OK, who else is guilty?

I don't see this as a pro gun article. This article is more like Bobby Jindal's address to the Republican party. This is the equivalent of Jindal saying we have to stop being the stupid party.

Here is the last paragraph:
This is why gun-control advocates need to abandon the routine of using mass shootings to turn law-abiding citizens into social pariahs and instead focus on something that could work.

I thought he was talking about something that would work in curbing the violence and stop blaming law abiding gun owners and making stupid connections to try and bash the 2A. That's how I interpreted it. If you are correct, we can just hope that the liberal readers are too dumb to extrapolate that bit of info.

Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear...

I'll admit to watching the idiot MSM but it's strictly to keep my BS detector sharp, and it's RAZOR sharp right now... In fact, it's not even a challenge anymore to pick out the outright lies and thinly veiled half-truths...I should find a better way to spend my time...maybe I'll get a cat...
