OK, not only are the Republicans making gun regulation a partisan issue, they are also using climate change. Guns aren't as much of a biggie as climate change is, but it's bad that the pseudoconservatives in the US are willing to play with the planet (unlike conservatives in other countries who admit there is a problem).
What if the world were a different place? CHeck out this video from Congressman Jared Huffman:
Guns aren't as much of a biggie since people are more likely to kill themselves with their guns than stop a crime.
What loss is it if a gun loon accidentally kills himself (herself)?

Now, of course, the promiscuous toting of guns is a God-given, fundamental-human and Constitutionally-protected right.

An Easley woman is dead after a six-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed her Thursday afternoon, authorities said.
They were both in a Dodge SUV stopped at Hasting Circle when the boy found a gun in the backseat floorboard and fired it, said Easley police Maj. Tim Tollison.
The bullet went through the passenger seat, striking Alexandra Anita Santos, 22, of 400 South D St., according to Pickens County Coroner Kandy Kelley.
Santos died at 12:53 p.m. of a single gunshot wound to the chest, Kelley said.
Two other children ages three and five were also in the vehicle but weren't injured, Tollison said.
None of the children were related to the victim, he said.
Police are still investigating how the weapon, a semi-automatic handgun, wound up in the vehicle, Tollison said.
