LA airport shooting another sign of political cowardice

November 7, 2013 

The Los Angeles airport shooting reminds us once again of two important lessons. The ban on assault weapons is absolutely necessary to protect innocent American civilians. The irrational rants of the tea party against government do have consequences.

When you combine that rhetoric with the accessibility to weapons, LAX is a minor episode in the terrorism that American citizens must be willing to face because their politicians do not have the courage to protect their constituents. Talk about the inmates running the asylum.
