Try to Remember the Kind of December

Someone asked me the other day if I remembered something about a call for "new gun laws in America" about six months ago.   You know, just before Christmas.

WTF was he talking about, I wondered!

I did some research and managed to come up with the following. 

Last December there was an incident in Connecticut in which a bunch of children in a school were shot by some guy.  A lot of regular folk on the Internet and even a fair number of politicians said it was more than time to take action to ban certain types of guns and maybe institute a system that helped keep dangerous or sick people from getting guns. 

Something like that.

Hard to remember this now because there were so many important things going on about the fiscal cliff, the football playoffs, and poor Kristin Stewart and Robert Pattinson forever not getting their shit together.  To be sure,  there were a few similar statements made again in February when some other guy shot up a Dairy Queen.

And a few more when another guy shot you and me in April. 

That's all she wrote!   Guess I'll have another humor post tomorrow.

Yep, this is a tough on to comment on. Guess I'll just scratch "Kilroy was here" on the wall and wait for the next humour post.

I see this as prophetic.

That's okay, great to have regular company. I'm lonely here on non-flash fiction days!

As it is meant to be, DPB. Even after some guy shot you and me!

Hope I'm wrong.
