    changes to gun laws (we'll deal with large magazines and increase penalties for a host of irresponsible actions) but I DO believe we will see - or already are seeing the beginning of the end of the NRA's bullet-proof influence and talking points.

    I think they have already floated to the top of NUMEROUS shitlists.

    The NRA ideology and talking points fit hand-in-glove with the GOP/conservative/Libertarian Venn Diagram of values and we saw in the last election those 'values' get voted out of office with some oomph. And as such and especially with Newtown and LaPierre's unhinged public statements they are no longer winning friends and (positively) influencing as many people.

    It is quite like the singe BEST thing to do with regards to gun is somehow take down the NRA or hobbling their lobbying machine.

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.
