    Of course all the senseless killings were voted the leading stories by the U.S. editors and news directors. They made them so, with non-stop, insensitive, even at times obscene intrusions into peoples' lives, and by unleashing a barrage of detail and non-news angles.

    It is a self-fulfilling prophecy. They direct the news, so the things they want to be #1 become #1.

    Now we are polling to see the biggest story of 2012? The elections or twenty children shot to death?
    Well, how about a poll to rate the most worthless insensitive poll of the year?

    That goes to David Crary and the Associated Press, hands down.

    The killings were horrific for anyone involved. If this individual had spiked the drinks or food at the cafeteria it could have been awful or maybe even worse.

    This makes the movement toward gun control one more crisis the President can use to take over control of Amendment 2. He has an agenda and to see Vice President Biden's look and actions and words, he is on a move. Gun locks and gun safes can provide safety from people that don't know how to subvert the systems or with people that actually put their guns in those devices.

    However, this Vice President can't control his mouth, either, or his brain. He has been on a close reign since the campainging became a one person run for President Obama. The Vice President can do more damage in the next month with gun control legislation to undo what was done with the Second Amendment's process in the past 200 years. The Courts with the appointments of judges with this type of agenda interpret with their liberal mentality.

    Children are important. Legislation will move toward more restrictions on guns in a way that the Founding Father's generation never conceived.

    Wait until after Jan 1st and the news story of 2013 will be the fiscal cliff and the sour economy.
