  Yep, that about sums it up.  Makes me embarrassed to be an
American sometimes.  Rest assured that SOME of us have clues and are
able to take responsibility for our own actions.

  Though the guns thing is ridiculous.  I don't like them either...but
you can kill someone just as effectively with a coat hanger as with a
gun...and that doesn't make coat hangers evil.  A gun is a tool like
any other.  And like any other, it can be abused by whatever moron is
holding it.
