Interesting that 7 pages of Google search results

.use exactly that same phrase as their headers, except for a 3 Wikipedia entries. You'd think it had been copied verbatim from a press release by somebody or other.

I will say that the only journalistic entry on that whole issue came from Mother Jones Magazine, which is a mildly left magazine. Otherwise it's all tweets and blogs, not a real bona fide journalist in the bunch.

You don't suppose it's just gun nuts hypering one another into a frenzy do you? egged on by the usual pot stirring and press releases of the other comb-over guy, Wayne LaPierre? Yeah, that's what I think too.
