Great collection of links and quotes on gun control and the United States. They’re all great, all worth reading (or re-reading), but none sum it up better than The Onion: “‘No Way To Prevent This,’ Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens:

Gun control legislation works — if by “works” you’re concerned with reducing deaths and injuries by homicide, accident, and suicide.
