About Me

I'm always on the lookout to connect with like-minded people, learn new things and debate the issues. I enjoy indoor gardening, traveling, going to the theater, reading and cooking. My great grandmother instilled in me a love for democratic politics. She lived through the great depression and talked about how essential FDR was in rescuing our country from the brink. My pronouns are he and his; I use they, them and their in posts when I refer to others when I do not know their gender.

Regulate the buying and selling of ammunition

We have to show an ID to buy Sudafed, but the theater shooter is able to get thousands of rounds of ammunition and no one bats an eye.

Something is wrong here. There is no one who needs that much ammunition unless they're waging a war.

I don't believe right to bear arms includes the right to unlimited stocks of ammunition. It's time to bring the abuse of the second amendment under control. And limiting the amount of ammunition people can own and purchase in a year is a reasonable proposition.

At some point the majority of Americans are going to say "enough," and persuade their representatives to pass an amendment banning handguns. And then everyone will lose the right because of the absolutists who won't accept any sensible gun control laws.
I wrote the above in reply to another thread. It's true that mass murders in a movie theater are rare, but mass shootings (Virginia Tech, the people gathered to hear Gabby Giffords speaking) seem to be turning into an epidemic.

Msnbc.com becomes NBCNews.com

REDMOND, Wash. NBC News has acquired full control of msnbc.com and its digital network from Microsoft Corp. and is immediately rebranding the site as NBCNews.com.

Many details of the arrangement remain to be worked out, and financial terms weren't disclosed.

But NBC News President Steve Capus said the site one of the news industry's earliest and most successful online operations would become part of NBC News Digital, a new division led by Vivian Schiller, the former president and chief executive of National Public Radio. Schiller joined NBC News as chief digital officer last year.

It's unclear how this will impact MSNBC TV. The site says business as usual for the cable channel, but does anyone really believe that?
