NRA said that they'd help make sure that something like the Connecticut incident never happens again. What does that mean...are they going to entirely reverse their interpretation of the Second Amendment and their commitment to individual gun ownership rights? Or are they going to work hard to re-focus the debate on what actually would have made a difference in Connecticut, i.e. earlier detection of psychopathic and paranoid schizophrenic pre-teens, and their separation into a humane care setting where, if they're under control, they can live productive lives, but in any case they're secure?
Emotions are high right now. Nothing has distracted the public since Sandy Hook. But, no one has a bill ready to vote on. Even if they did, lobbyists would work hard to make sure that it had a slow track through the committee system for evaluation. Soon there will be another leading story, and then another one and another one, and emotions will fade. Somewhere in there the bills will start to wend their way through the system. By then, the votes won't be there anymore
