Some hopeful signs of sanity on guns

Demand a plan on guns [1]New York’s legislature appears to be making some modest progress on complying with the Second Amendment’s demand for a well-regulated militia. According to news reports [2], state lawmakers have reached a bipartisan agreement with Governor Cuomo to further restrict assault weapons and make it harder for persons with mental illness to commit murders. Good for them.

Meanwhile, here in North Carolina, a handful of local mayors held a press event yesterday [3] to endorse the eminently sane demands of the group Mayors Against Illegal Guns [4] that a plan be crafted to address the nation’s absurd gun-related murder rate.

Finally, if you’re looking for a common sense explanation of what’s at-stake, how truly modest the demands and objectives of the pro-militia regulation forces are and how utterly insane some of the troubled folks are on the other side, take a few minutes to watch Jon Stewart explain it all.
