  •  TD - why make it a partisan issue? (0+ / 0-)

    I respect your passion on the issue of gun control, but why make it a partisan issue? There are many strong 2nd Amendment advocates who are Dems (including here at DKOS) and many gun control advocates who are Republicans. Make sensible gun control a bipartisan, big tent, effort. I do not favor having President Obama lead this effort because I don't want this to be a Republican vs Democrat issue where the Democrats are viewed as the party who favors stronger gun control laws. I already saw that movie and didn't like the ending. Gun control legislation works best at the state and local level. Focus your efforts there and make them bipartisan.

      Both sides are guilty of cowardice and fanaticism.  I said as much.

      Yes, I single out the President for action.  But I do so today not because I'm one of his adoring fans, but because he has spent his first term not only ignoring but even weakening the state of gun laws in this country.
