I think it is fair to say that this blog, while I try to focus on photography, has always held itself out as a blog that deals with more than just photography. As many of my U. S. viewer/readers know (and, I’m sure many others around the world know), the U. S. has huge problems with gun violence. I have pointed out earlier my personal connection with what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary, but gun violence is everyone’s problem. Recently the U.S. Senate failed to overcome a filibuster of a very weak proposal that took baby steps toward addressing the gun violence issue. They claim such laws are ineffective. In a brilliant piece of political satire, John Oliver of The Daily Show hosted by Jon Stewart rips this argument to shreds.
