your partisanship solves nothing stupid

Dear liberal friends: the massacre in DC did NOT HAPPEN because we lack MORE control on guns (you know, in DC, where guns are basically banned, and the naval yard is where nobody has weapons...).

Dear conservative friends: Clinton-era gun control policies restricting weapons on bases DID NOT KILL THOSE MURDERED TODAY. Some psycho with lawfully acquired weapon(s) did.

Seriously, people. Can we stop making EVERYTHING about whose policies might have contributed to the blame? People died today. Parents aren't going home to their kids. DC lived in terror today. I have friends who were within blocks of the tragic scene. It's like we're incapable of letting the bodies get removed from the scene before we start pointing fingers at ANYBODY BUT the shooter! Come on. Get real.
