Duels? Really?

So apparently, now, the Republicans have gotten their talking points in order.

The new message: "The shooting in Arizona is no big deal. We used to settle differences in this country with duels."

Pardon me while I gather up my outrage.

Yes, historically, men fought duels. Over stupid things such as perceived slights to women, their own honor and sometimes just because they could.

But those duels never took out innocent civilians. Or 9-year-old little girls.

I thought I couldn't be disgusted by this any more than I already was.

I was wrong.

BTW, I have pictures on my blog of the rectangles I make for HAP. Take a look. See you on the boards.
