The impossibility of gun control
The Navy Yard massacre won't revive the gun debate in Congress for a simple reason. There is no gun control agenda this side of a total ban and confiscation that would have stopped Aaron Alexis.The Toomey Manchin bill could have passed Congress unanimously. The assault weapons ban could still be in place. Gun controllers could have achieved their long ago goal of barring the private purchase of handguns. And every step of his mayhem at the Washington Navy Yard would have been unimpeded.
