My American roots go back seven generations...so I am going to talk tough about MY country. We have FAILED to reign in our home grown enemies. Throughout the decades violence has plagued our country. But now the ability to buy guns online or in gun shops and use these weapons to wage mass murder is simply outrageous.
A few weeks ago a crazed doctoral student opened fire on innocent movie goers in Colorado. Now just days ago while we celebrated Olympic victories of our talented athletes, a Neo-Nazi army veteran walked into a peaceful Sikh temple in Oak Creek ,Wisconsin and killed six people before cowardly turning the gun on himself.
I suspect that his racism was so twisted that he thought the Sikh community was the same as the Muslim community, since their turbans brought out his racism.
The larger question is why isn’t more being done to track down and curtail the destruction of our domestic terrorists who luck in villages, cities and towns throughout this country? They are lone wolves, destructive, dangerous and sooooooo wrong about the ethnic and cultural complexities of our nation.
Joining us from Washington DC to talk about this week’s tragedy and the impact to the Sikh community is Dr. Gurmit Singh Aulakh, President of the Council of Khalistan.
It’s the multicultural conversation we need to have every week until we put a lid on the dangerous domestic terrorists in our midst.

A tragedy indeed, and my heart goes out to all affected by this senseless murder. However, I think it's important to place the responsibility squarely on the murderer, and not on his chosen weapon. When I was young, guns were more far more readily available than they are today. You could buy them at department stores and even gas stations in many states. That kind of easy availability did not turn most of the people of my generation into mass murderers.
