Thank goodness the Republicans control the House.
Don't bank on that saving us. The Republicans never have the guts to speak out and bring up their own issues, always playing defense.
If they ever wanted to actually engage instead of huddle in fear they should come out against the Dems for all the cash they've thrown at education without so much as a nod to school security. They pay for mountains of useless paperwork when the kid's safety should be their #1 priority. It's never an issue until a tragedy like this but this wasn't the first school shooting. And guns aren't the only threat.
I'm afraid this won't be enough. I have a bad feeling this event will galvanize support for gun control and at the very least, we can expect a line-for-line resurrection of the Clinton-era AWB right around the corner. Obama will cut a deal with House Republicans to push it through. Obama currently enjoys political capital that Clinton didn't have in '94. He doesn't have to worry about re-election and nobody's afraid of the "Angry White Male" like they were two decades ago. The minority and female voters who sent Obama back to the White House will support him on this.
Twenty dead kindergartners a week before Christmas changes things. Every soccer mom in America is going to be howling for Obama to do something.
0bama and his Executive Orders don’t care about the House. If he can use it to overturn immigration law...
