Gun Sales Soar - New Gun Control Measures



It appears that a lot of people in Arizona, and other States are buying up more guns since the tragic shootings last weekend in Tuscon. Some say it's because they are afraid their gun rights will soon be taken away, others say it's because people are scared and want to protect themselves.

Maybe places will start having gun boxes, in case of emergency, like they now have fire alarm boxes for emergencies?





Except, some measures will be enforced, like you'll have to be 21 years of age in order to break the glass. *sarcastic sigh*

Your piece takes on added power because it bears a bit of a resemblance to an icon, and what is more iconic than a Glock (to quote this morning's newspaper on the gun show).

You also underscore what the tragedy should engender, which is a meaningful discussion about violence in America. That's the issue.

Thanks Maureen ... it's certainly a hot topic issue. I can see some good of both sides myself too regarding gun control...but violence seems to be escalating big time lately, sad to say :(
