That is NOT what is happeneing now, and you're missing this most important point.
You are not understanding the pressure that our elected officials are under to enact gun legislation. It's like NOTHING we have seen in the past. Killing 20 6 & 7 year olds has fundamentally changed things, dramatically raised the emotional reaction to new heights, and I fear we are going to get hammered.
What do you base all this nonsense on - CNN reports? Come on, show us some real evidence to back up all these claims.
