You might want to click over to Civil Beat for my column that appears this morning, “Hawaii Monitor: Paying The Price For Being A Gun-Crazy Country.”
Why is it that attempts to discuss public ?rearm policies seem to quickly bring the craziness of American society into such high relief?
Farthest out on the crazy scale may be total whack-jobs like the so-called Sandy Hook Truthers, conspiracy nutters who are convinced the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School was faked by the government using actors as part of a vast plot to manipulate public opinion in favor of strict gun-control measures. Some of the more vocal have called for prosecution of relatives of the Newtown victims for taking part in what they say was really a government-sponsored hoax….
In any case, I expect it will kick up a fuss in response, but we’ll see.
