What gets me is that these congresscritters figure they HAVE to do “something”. So they try to pass more and more onerous legislation. What they need to do is sit back and develop some patience and not “scream and shout and run-about”.

That's not it. p

It's an excuse to push their gun-control agenda.  And that's all it is.

You may remember, only a few days after the Aurora shooting, 15 people died when a truck left a road in Texas, and crashed into some trees. As I recall, the truck was carrying 23 occupants.

Re: Authorities Try To Identify 15 Victims Of Deadly Texas Pickup Truck Crash

Did you hear a single word from the likes of Michael Bloomberg, or Carolyn McCarthy, following this tragedy?

No.

No hand-wringing. No crocodile tears for the victims.

No calls for a ban on "assault vehicles", capable of traveling faster than the speed limit.

No calls for a ban on "high capacity assault vehicles", capable of carrying 10 or more passengers.

They couldn't care less.

They couldn't use these deaths in Texas to further their political agenda, so they, and the media, buried the story, even before the victims were in the ground.

And this is why people like Diana DeGette are beneath contempt.
