    Is nice in theory, but is simply not something that can be turned off like a light switch. I understand the whack-a-mole analogy, but saying all or nothing is also kind of a cop out.

    •  Yah. I understand. (4+ / 0-)

      It is whack-a-mole.  Restrictions need to be put in place.  Perhaps it should be done by restricting political donations to citizens only.  PAC's clearly are out of control.  Maybe it's term limits.

      Most gun owners don't belong to the NRA and most would agree that tightening background checks for gun sales/transfers would be a good thing.  Mandatory sentences for anyone using a gun in a crime...whether a 14 year old or a senior citizen,  needs to be put in place as well.
