  •  Filibuster the filibuster. (2+ / 0-)

    True gun control advocates (yes, there a few) need to stand up in front of the Senate and start reading off the names of every person who was murdered or accidentally killed by a firearm during the past year.

    Figuring about 2 seconds per name, and over 30,000 such deaths per year, that should take about 17 hours of continuous reading. And that's just for the past 12 months. That filibuster could go on for a very, very long time.
