    The research hasn't even begun and already both sides are using it as one more platform to get in their best shots. Well, they've had their say and now if they don't mind or even if they do, it's time for the National Academies to thank them both for coming, usher them out, close and lock the doors, and get on with it knowing that no matter what their findings turn out to be, Congress will have one more study to put on the shelf to gather dust.

    Great idea! Here is what I predict they will find: The overwhelming vast majority of guns used in crimes were obtained and used illegally. How do I know? I legally own several guns and none of MY guns were ever used in a crime. I know 100's of other gun owners and NONE of their guns were ever used in a commission of a crime! Imagine that people, its not the guns that are bad, its a few bad PEOPLE who use guns illegally! Sort of like knowing that spoons are not the real cause of obesity.

    Wow. What a concept. Study the issue and reach an informed decision.

    Rather than blindly accept the party line thinking that has been around for years and years.

    We need to apply this logic to many of the issues facing our country.

    I am afraid that people would rather have a wrong decision that fits in with party ideology than a correct one that doesn't.
