You forget one thing. Follow the money.
My senator flipped his opinion on gun control. Reason? He wants to stay elected.
Just today the parent financial company of the "conglomerate" freedom group withdrew funding. That's a HUGE issue for the industry. Why? Anti-gun investors - with investment clout - voiced their desire to withdraw money from the company. Money!
I agree with you - enough has happened that we need to realize the writing on the wall. Before it happens! They are leading up to removal of guns from our society. And before you say "oh that won't happen here"... well yes it will. They will shut down the gun industry piece by piece, and that will just be the start.
As you know, the real issue is not guns. When the same thing happens with a drunk driver... you don't go banning yellow cars! You go after the issue. This poor kid was mentally ill. He stole guns! If anything we need better gun storage training. And better mental illness screening. This kid should have gotten meds! But does anyone care? Where are the voices in the country that are saying this? The NRA as of this morning is STILL silent on the issue. Perhaps they are waiting for all the facts. Regardless, it appears the industry is beginning to self-destruct. We simply need to be politically active so our voices will be heard.
Don't be surprised if mandatory gun registration is coming our way. "I told you so".
We need to get involved NOW and voice our opinions to our representatives.
