CHE BELLO longs for gun control.

The Washington Post’s “Around the Nation” section today details the death of an 8-year-old who was allowed to fire an Uzi sub-machine gun at a firearms exposition. He was under the supervision of an uncertified 15 year old and he discharged the weapon while his father reached for his camera. How are these people allowed to have children, and what is the uniquely American fascination with the possession of firearms? I will never understand why so many in our society feel that arming themselves is not only a good idea, but is necessary and honorable. How many more children have to die at the hands of irresponsible parents before our nation gets serious about gun control? And just who needs an Uzi anyway, for Chrissakes?
