The solution is insurance. You can own a gun, but it has to be insured. And if that gun creates any havoc, the insurance company has to pay.” Cenk says, “That’s really smart because what it does is get capitalism behind the solution.” Watch the video now

I don't really feel sorry for Shellie Zimmerman. Wasn't she just convicted for perjury for LYING about the money they had received from the public and consequently causing his bail initially to be low. She was assisting in trying to get this ass hole off. A charge that Zimmerman initially had, but was mysteriously dropped. I am predicting that Zimmerman will find his judge and jury at the end of a bullet. If he does, hopefully its SEVERAL bullets.

Predictable. This same question and reasoning is presented after every mass shooting. Its a prepared position of the likes Naomi Klein writes about in The Shock Doctrine. The fact quoted above makes no difference, its a position and reasoning designed to appeal to sense of 'losing control' and the American obsession and love of guns.
