I guess this means we need to ratify the United Nations small arms treaty huh?

This was exactly the very first thought that went through my mind when I heard this news this morning.

Obama needed his crisis, and now he has it. This treaty will flow through the Senate with little more than a peep. They'll parade the victims out on national news outlets and call any Senator refusing to ratify the treaty as cold and callous.

Never mind that if two or three audience members were carrying that this would have ended quickly or may never have happened if the guy knew the likelihood of an armed audience.

Odd how, when a gun control measure is in trouble, some sort of gun incident occurs to make it easier to pass?
