The gun lobby can sense its stranglehold on America weakening. Gun rights zealots are becoming desperate and openly slandering advocates who have lost loved ones to gun violence, calling them "vultures" for trying to prevent future Loughners from arming themselves to commit mass murder. The NRA audaciously claims to be "respecting the heartache of the people of Tucson" by sending orders to Capitol Hill to block any and all attempts at meaningful reform.
They know that Tucson laid bare the porous, insane gun laws that they wrote and pushed our legislators to enact. And they know that the entire gun violence prevention movement is now working together to obtain a life-affirming victory out of this tragedy.What's your opinion? Lately we've been hearing the idea that the gun-rights movement may have peaked out already. That's what I've been saying anyway. Josh says the "stranglehold is weakening," same thing.
