    Former CIA director General David Petraeus and retired astronaut Mark Kelly announced that they are joining forces to create a new gun control group for veterans.
    Petraeus is collaborating with Kelly to form “The Veterans Coalition for Common Senseâ€, an anti-gun group that appears to be a spin-off of the multi-state “Coalition for Common Sense†and “Americans for Responsible Solutionsâ€, a series of control organizations propped up by Kelly and his wife, Gabrielle Giffords.
    Launched on Friday, the organization claims that it will push for more gun control legislation in order to prevent veteran suicides and gun tragedies, citing gun violence and military suicide statistics.

    Why not a group to fight the first amendment is case someone says something so mean someone jumps off a bridge? Or maybe a group to ban bridges to help lower the suicide rate.

    Common sense from a general who gave his mistress classified top secret documents... and served time for it.

    Well, looks like General David Betrayus' earlier nickname is more apropos now.

    I do not believe he actually served time. He was given a sentence and 2 years probation and $100,000 fine.

    There's plenty of gun control where this POS ought to be, namely prison!

    He was one of the first general officers to become Obama's lap dog. Unfortunately, many, MANY others have fallen in lock step right behind him. When I left the AF in 2014, it had become VERY, VERY rare that I encountered or dealt with ANY officer in the grade of O-6 or higher that I could look up to as a genuine leader. And that is a sad state of affairs.

    Unfortunately, somewhere around O-6 the focus shifts from being a good leader to being a good politician.
