Why does common sense take a back seat to the facts? Ask the NRA leadership. Ask President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder. Ask your own Congressman or Senator. You will find the answer in the skewed influence wielded by the gun lobby that is actually costing lives in another country. This is unacceptable and shameful.

Because this isn't a "gun problem". Finland and Switzerland don't have a "gun problem". This is a drug problem. The NRA will tell you, President Obama will tell you, and even Eric Holder will tell you.
We need to legalize drugs NOW, in order to lower violence in Mexico.
Because Canada doesn't have this problem, but then again Vancouver has a freakin' "needle exchange" for addicts. Obviously Canada's reduced violence is due to their relaxed drug laws. It is only common sense.
