The summing up, sums it up

Two different posts or comments from sources I don't always rely upon for "trenchant" analysis (not everyone can be as intellectually sound as a Fark photoshop thread).

First someone at Gawker depressingly points out that FoxNews runs the world:

Those same people, who moved like buttered lightning to yank ACORN funding, won't even entertain the briefest possibility of thinking about maybe eventually, after consideration, applying the slightest restriction to the availability of guns.

But it will probably be even worse, per Dave Weigel:

Arizona's response—the most likely legislative response—is going to be expanded gun rights.

So remember ladies and gentlemen, enrolling voters bad, the occasional empowered spree killer "meh".

Always remember that the Constitution begins and ends with the second clause of the Second Amendment.
