Another damn shooting

Is there something in the water in Aurora?
Four dead, including the gunman.

I have generally avoided the brouhaha over gun control as being an issue of two sides preaching to their respective choirs. The discussions seem revolve around the choice of: on the one hand – militarize kindergardens; on the other hand – nothing more dangerous than a marshmallow.
If we could simply exclude the two extremes, we might have a fruitful discussion, but I don’t see that happening. In theory, this is a perfect instance of where political leadership should manifest itself, and it is a sharp indictment of our politicians that no such leadership is apparent.
It does not bode well for a sensible resolution to the problem.
