  •  Gun nuts will lose this time (3+ / 0-)

    As usual, the gun nut lobby is hijacking the conversation America needs to have about common sense gun laws and is turning the entire post-Newtown discussion into a referendum on whether anyone is allowed to own a gun. The NRA is best in class at false equivalence and twisting reality to fit the goals of their tiny, extreme, unhinged membership. Americans are demanding action to make sure we never have another massacre like this again. No one has a constitutional right to a machine gun or 100-round ammo clips. Gun nuts are going to lose this time because the country is galvanized like never before behind the right side, the side that is moving to substantive regulations that save lives.  -  progressive

    •  What proposal do you think will actually pass (0+ / 0-)

      Congress and also prevent mass murders from every happening again?  Thus far, I have seen nor heard any proposal that could do that.  

    •  Never? (0+ / 0-)

      "demanding action to make sure we never have another massacre like this again."

      That is, tragically, impossible even if every firearm in the country disappeared. There is room for hope that gun law reform might make them less frequent and less lethal, but that's all.
