Stupidity, Politics, and Math
This is a very interesting write up about why the author believes that no real gun control legislation will be passed this year.
I have my doubts about whether or not he is correct. A lot of his points look like wishful thinking to me. Too much faith is put in pro gun politicians holding the line. As there has been a lot of wavering in our (previously) 2nd Amendment supporting Senators, I believe that few of them can be trusted to do what's right.
I really hope that I'm wrong.
