  •  How much of the available resources are (7+ / 0-)

    spent doing nothing more than combating proposals like an AWB and magazine capacity limits?  

    Those are resources that would be better spent on things like improving the NICS.  As long as these types of bans and restrictions remain the focal point, progress will be slowed.  It is the equivalent to being stuck in a tar pit.

    •  The NRA can change the game. (6+ / 0-)

      Put the pedal to the metal as the case may be, and bring the issue to the Nation.

      1) advertise the initiative.
      2) advocate for a doubling of existing excise taxes on guns, ammunition, accessories.
      3) drop it in Congress's lap.  Expansion of NICS, database upgrade, funding, all settled.
      4) Hold Congress to getting moving on Single-Payer Mental Health care, and probably dealing with the HIPPA privacy issues regarding reporting of persons evincing psychotic and/or sociopathic behavior.

      Single-payer is a bridge too far for this month, but if the NRA says "let's go" then where's the shade for the Republicans who'd say no, hell no?
