What Did They Do Between the Two Shootings?

No, I am not talking about the interim between the 7:15 murders and the 9:30 massacre, the one that the cable news folks are obsessing about in order to foment a scandal. I am talking about the long, long interim that stretches from April 1999 to April 2007--that vast empty parenthesis between Columbine and Virginia Tech when nothing was done by our cowardly elected officials to protect our children from a national pistol-packing ammo dump high on fear and racial hatred.

I wonder if Hillary will be making the rounds in support of her video game legislation. That would be so proper and politically astute. Maybe Harry Reid will join her. Let's do blame this unthinkable slaughter on violence in the games children play. Hey, Hillary, do you know why Japanese and Korean and British children who play the same violent games do not commit mass murder in their home countries?
