Would you construct a world where this fact was both accepted and justified; We've had more domestic gun deaths in the Land of the Free than in all the wars we have fought since the Declaration of Independence. We need different ways to think and about this. These ways aren't working out except for gun merchants, the NRA and funeral directors.
During a recent rally at Capitol Square in Richmond, gun control advocates handed out fliers with a grisly statistic.

Dave Winer urges greater civic maturity.
"Our system of government is set up so that if you want to get anything done, you must listen to other people and consider their needs. Give a little to get a little. You'll never get all that you want. And that's a good thing.

Too many people belong to the My Way Or The Highway Party. They're tired of being politically correct or they're feeling the bern, whatever it is, they've found a reason they don't have to listen. And that's not actually going to work.

The key is to listen. Listen especially carefully to things you don't want to hear. That's where our country comes together. That's where growing up happens."
Dave Winer

Grotesquely perverse. Daunting to reverse.
U.S. state and local spending on prisons and jails grew at three times the rate of spending on schools over the last 33 years as the number of Americans behind bars ballooned under a spate of harsh sentencing laws, a government report released Thursday said.
