Specifically we should End the Gun Epidemic in America It is a moral outrage and a national disgrace that civilians …

The rush to judgement is real, but what’s missing? Rational examination of what failed.

Newsbusters has outlined yet another example of "blame the NRA for everything" and outright media bias in the rush to judgment after a mass shooting: http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/culture/kristine-marsh/2015/12/02/media-blame-conservatives-nra-knowing-anything-about-san There's some things to keep in mind about California, which has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation.    California: Assault Weapons Ban Magazine Capacity Bans …
