Please, please, please spare us the embarrassment of a weeks long congressional fight about gun control, both sides sending their members one after another to the podium offering their hot-air to their bases. Then everyone holds their breath for the final vote---- to see if 20 or 30 specific kinds of weapons are banned, leaving hundreds with nearly identical firepower alone. Or to determine how many bullets a legal clip can hold----hoping for a bunch instead of a bigger bunch.
Can we shame, or kiss the butts, or intellectually convince enough republicans in the House to pass this breathtaking and daring legislation?
The entire thing is a fucking embarrassment to the country. I'm begging our side's representatives not to put us through this humiliation, if those are the only changes on the bill.
