When I saw that on mediamatters yesterday, I thought I was hallucinating. Is this really it? Is something actually going to finally get done?

Will anything get done though?

I think the Aussie method is pretty sound and solid. It doesn't infringe on anyone's rights, but it does make you go a little further to get one. The police checks would definitely send people into a rage.....

I also think insurance should be a thing for the firearms. I think most parents would do a much, much better job of securing their weapons and ammo knowing if a family member takes one and shoots someone or more people, they are held liable for some of the damages.

I'm not a lawyer, and would never claim to understand the law in this regard, but those that do know, is this something we CAN do? My fear is that any sort of restriction in this climate, with this SC, will be shot down.

We did pass a assault rifle ban before, but it was a different court then.

Also, we definitely need the CDC or another organization to study gun violence in this country. Completely maddening that we're not even allowed to research this.

That is an awesome speech.

So Senators Chris Murphy, Richard Blumenthal, and Cory Booker just recently filibustered (for fifteen hours) on behalf of a couple new gun control measures,. and I came across this video with Murphy from that filibuster session today. He tells one hell of a powerful story about two particular Sandy Hook victims in it:

British MP murdered in cold blood today. The killer was yelling as he did it; not "Allahu Akbar", but "Britain First".

Truly horrifying.

Can't wait for it to still somehow be the fault of foreigners though. "If those Muslims weren't coming to Britain he wouldn't have felt the need to do this!"

At least one other media report said a witness quoted did not hear "Britain first" shouted. It is unclear if the witness is same personcited by BBC.

"We were as shocked to hear these reports as everyone else,"Fransen told Reuters. "At the moment would point out this ishearsay, we are keen to verify the comments but we can only dothat when the police provide more details."

with time this will become more clear
