Guns Galore, Our Hopes/Fears Aside

Abby Zimet

With guns now allowed in churches, bars, parks and pretty much
anywhere else, the NRA is freely wielding its power and money
in Congress as never before. Thus did the Brady Center to Prevent Gun
Violence give Obama an "F" across the board on gun control issues - a
grade richly, sadly deserved.

From the Chicago Tribune: "On the list of issues for which Obama is

willing to put himself on the line, gun control ranks somewhere below
free trade with Uzbekistan."

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
