View Diary: What if the Newtown Shooter was MUSLIM (20 comments)

  •  What if the shooting took place pre-election? (3+ / 0-)

    Obama, Romney and Congressional candidates would have to evaluate their responses in view of polarized voters and close polls. Voters might make gun policy as some sort of litmus test.

    Given the dynamics of framing, race and policy - how do you think this tragedy would have been addressed? Just curious.

      but at the same time, it's always pre-election (for future elections) and voters can still make gun policy a litmus test.  Unfortunately, the litmus test has more often involved support of the NRA while proponents of gun control are more apt to look the other way.  This needs to change.

      Things work out best for those who make the best of the way things work out.
