You may be right - I don't know what's in his motives - no one but him knows. I only know that I am not willing to couch a discussion of my 2nd Amendment rights in the wake of a tragedy that has been the subject of nonstop news ghouling, handwringing, springboarding gun-control proposals, and 'calls for a discussion' about gun-control. The very idea of 'gun-control' is counter to the Second Amendment. The Seond Amendment says NOTHING about 'hunting and why does someone need an AR-15'; it says NOTHING about "weapons intended for the battlefield"; it says NOTHING about magazine size and the 'need' for it; it says "shall not be infringed."
These constant CNN, MSNBC, FOX et al ghoul sessions are serving as springboards for influence of the ignorant electorate to get rid of guns, period. Eric, by his discussion, is contributing to this. He should preface his treatise first and foremost that there should be no discussion except one that enacts a new Amendment, if they can do this.

I agree 100%. Don’t get me wrong. And I believe Erickson does as well. I think He was just stating that this horrible event is one that the left feels they can really push us into a debate about the issue. So we have to prepare to debate it. I believe sense and logic will win out, but we can’t just sit on the sidelines.
