80. Oh, they wouldn't care about their HQ....they'd play the Martyr Card and say "See? See? We need

MORE guns, not less!!!!!"

If one of their children/grandchildren was at the wrong end of a gun--say, one held by a teacher at the end of his/her rope...or a "school policeman" who was just told he was losing his job after being teased by the rest of the force incessantly....or even an angry relative determined to make someone "pay"--maybe then they'd "personalize" the issue.

For now, though, it's an US v. THEM game. They think they are the smartest guys in the room, because they have the guns and can bully (so they think) people into shutting up.

Those days are gone.

It's important that the gun control side of this equation speak very rationally and stay focused on one issue at a time. I think a good place to start is assault weapons. Next they can go after some of those crazy magazines, and unfettered access to insane amounts of ammo--to include ammo that isn't for hunting Bambi, but for hunting cops in body armor. It is going to be a long hard slog, but just as Porgie used to say "Nahn Wun Wun" to shut people up who did not want to go to war, our team can say "Newtown" to cut short a load of obfuscation and bullshit on this issue. At least we'll be on the right side of the issue, unlike Dumbya...
