A Bend Counselor doesn't believe the shooting in Colorado will result in added gun control laws- especially on the national level. Jane Meyers says when there is a massive and random shooting there is often talk among lawmakers about added "controls" on gun possession and ammunition sales. But new legislation rarely happens because as a general rule Americans don't like to be controlled. Meyers even talks about drunk driving laws as an example.  She says even though we all agree that the harm drunk drivers can cause can be devastating - our penalties are light compared to other countries.  For example - you can get the death penalty in at least one country for a DUII. And, in Russia, where they like their Vodka, a drunk driver can lose his or her license for life.   Meyers adds that  when horrific events happen people often are fearful and have the urge to "do" something to prevent a similar event in the future.. She says its often better to focus on what you *can* control.
