68. I don't think that the vice-President

or anyone else is saying "fuck it all", I think what's being said is that much of what is being proposed is unlikely to yield the substantial results that some people seem to believe will happen. With that being said, there are some changes that are politically possible to achieve and which would have a tangible impact on curbing gun violence, such as requiring that all transfers to go through an FFL holder and establishing a Federal gun owners license that would require background checks, including mental health screenings. Instead of grandstanding over proposals that accomplish little and which have virtually no chance of being enacted, why not proceed with legislation that could actually pass and which would yield tangible results?
