Go ahead, Hillary, dance barefoot on that rail. What could possibly go wrong?
"Beyond short-term tactics, Clinton's militancy also illustrates that gun control is no longer a political third rail for Democrats."
A column that makes a bit more sense, but won't make a dent in the collectivists' appetites for citizen disarmament is: "Guns, Congress, and the will of the people."
It is easy to grandstand and pretend that there is an obvious legislative response to mass shootings; that there exists a legislative blueprint to prevent them, if only the forces of evil in Congress would get out of the way (picture them now, lighting cigars provided by the NRA with flames from burning $100 bills provided by the Koch brothers). But over time, and in particular on issues subject to much public discussion, Congress generally does reflect the will of the people. And with respect gun control, notwithstanding our desire to “do something” in the face of tragedy, the people appear to have gotten it basically right.
