    Though I agree with you, that that is the only real solution, long term, nothing meaningful will happen short term.

    Eg: in 2003, the last full year of the assault weapons ban, 30,000 people died due to gun shot wounds.

      I know your intentions are good, but this kind of statistic is useless and misleading and can be easily shared.  And it shows zero info about assault weapons which to which you are referencing.  This is exactly what is happening that you're concerned about.  

      And there is something that can happen short-term that will be very meaningful.  If this really is a game changing moment where the NRA can be, at the very least, knocked down a peg or 10 in influence on congress, it could be the beginning of a new national dialog where the status quo is no longer everyone saying "what can we do?" and instead sitting down and talking to each other a figuring it out.

      The priest said, "Today's sermon is called 'Liars', but first I have a question. How many of you have read Chapter 66 in Matthew?" Nearly every hand went up. "You're just the group I need to speak to," the priest said. "There's no such chapter."
