  •  Chas. Pierce and RFK both addressed this subject (9+ / 0-)

    as I noted in this diary last night.   They spoke about the price of greed 34 years apart.  Pierce's piece yesterday focused on the Newtown Massacre while RFK's 1968 speech specifically mentioned the Texas Tower Sniper.

    In the immediate term, reinstating the assault weapons ban that never should've been allowed to lapse is a no-brainer.  Restrictions on magazine size are also essential.  In the longer term, you're absolutely correct about what needs to be done.  I wish that I saw people in positions of power who felt similarly.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?
