Friday gun control wrap-up...You won't believe this

NO Discounts for the NRA
Delta flight 2567 is holding in a pattern--at least it was yesterday--over the Atlanta airport, the pilot professing his goal of staying there until, "...meaningful gun control laws are passed." He is following Delta's move to sever its ties with the National Rifle Assn. Think they should refuel this dude mid-air until the congressional idiots come to their senses.

FedEx hit a low blow to UPS when it accused UPS, "... of having a relationship with America's top gun lobby." They don't, except they deliver for the NRA online store, which "includes accessories such as ball caps, T-shirts, holsters and hunting and sporting goods merchandise." However, FedEx gladly continues to give discounts to NRA members.

While the U.S. won't even consider banning assault rifles, Australia was receiving many of these back in a three-month gun amnesty program that netted 57,000 total illegal firearms for the country. Aussies continued to make this decision after, "...tough gun laws were introduced in 1996. There are still an estimated 250,000 unlicensed guns in circulation in Australia, but at least they're working on it.

Gun massacres in the U.S. have absolutely no impact on lawmakers here but Norway has taken notice and, "...the Norwegian government now appears to have a majority for its plan to ban semiautomatic rifles." Another reason was when, right-wing gunman, Anders Behring Breivik, killed 77 people on Norway's Utoya island in 2011 with an assault rifle; most of the victims were children or teenagers. It seems U.S. gun violence influences only countries where the residents are sane. America is not one of those.
