irrespective of my own convictions, it seems as though we all like to make claims in this debate that illustrate the desire to claim knowledge and the representation of a larger social sentiment regarding gun control (you will find links to a few other sites that engage in this discussion form various points of view in my previous post and in a comment on it) . Why don’t we find out what the wordpress community thinks about this, just to get a feel for the nature of the discussion on this forum.
To that end: comment on this post and just answer yes, or no to the following questions:
1. should there be stricter gun control laws?
2. should guns be outlawed altogether?
3. should the events at Virginia Tech factor into this debate?
I will post a summary of the vote later and then we can continue the discussion with a feeling for what a democratically produced decision would suggest (however representative this small sample/poll may be). After all, that should be the true foundation of any democratic society.
Feel free to disseminate this.
