Gun Control Enters The Campaign

Finally the issue of gun control has emerged in Campaign 2008. Just as quickly as it emerged it has been swept under the rug . When it comes to any meaningful discussion of gun control all the candidates are milquetoasts. Even with Charlton Heston giving them the opportunity to wrest the gun " from my cold dead hands" candidates do not want to tackle the NRA. It seems all the candidates are hunters, once hunted or merely have respect for hunters. As such the issue of gun control is reduced to protecting a "sport" . As it turns out protecting innocent citizens from the hunters of humans must take a lower priority.
