  •  What I have a problem with is if they are going (0+ / 0-)

    to do all of least try to first fix a seriously broken system and actually prosecute people who attempt to buy a gun and fail a background check.  Out of everything being done....this is the one thing that would have actually stopped Newtown....and no one is even talking about it.

    Fourteen days prior to the shooting, he attempted to buy a gun and failed a background check.  What a different outcome, had they actually arrested him. All those children would still be alive.

      But of all those who failed a background check last year, less than a percent ever had anything happen to them....they simply walked away to get a gun in any numerous other ways....just like he did.
