(from salon.com)
[Ed: Back from Dallas, we’re posting our presentations this week. You can also watch us in living color at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmyEJ7KJMIs] Do we need crisis in this country to pull us together?  It seems that the citizens of this country pull together after a tragedy.  What has been happening over the past year is a travesty and personally, I would say un-American.  When supposedly peaceful demonstrators begin to attack other demonstrators, that's not demonstrating that’s ri...

In fact history has repeatedly shown that firearms, including assault weapons, can ...
