    That is an insane statement. Do you honestly think her face is going to change the current movement any more than CT did? Of course not. My "side" has nothing to do with anything. Fact...

    Gun control advocates are losing support again. Even unrest for any new sweeping changes by Democrats is lagging. So please tell me what difference she made?

    12 years military and x LEO yea I know and people like me know our weapons and rounds pretty well. Just ask me anything you want to know, What round bucks brush better or gives you better penetration?

    A little common sense goes a long way. So tell you what why doesn't the government just pay an expert like my self a few million to do the same thing as they are trying to pay the CDC to do? Because they are using it as an excuse.

    That is not the data that is pertinent to public policy and people being able to make better decisions. Think more along the lines of epidemiology type studies.

    Yes I agree because the "persona" of someone is so much more important than our 2nd amendment rights.

    I didn't think you had any evidence to support your claim...

    Post-Sandy Hook Support for Gun Control Already Slipping - Post-Sandy Hook Support for Gun Control Already Slipping - Hit & Run : Reason.com
    CNN/Time Poll: Slight dip in support for gun control measures in last month - CNN/Time Poll: Slight dip in support for gun control measures in last month – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs
    Senators say Obama’s proposal for gun control has little support - Senators say Obama

    I don't think anyone can rest yet, but it is looking better.

    time will tell

    my prediction is that we will see more gun control. but not enough
    not until the next sandy hook massacre

    What cause do we need to study? We already know...

    Most gun crime happens in the US in population centers with populations of 250,000 or more. The vast majority of said crimes are in black and Hispanic neighborhoods. The cause? Gang violence and the drug war.

    Any questions? Or are you going to keep making excuses for a waist of time and money that is only being used to strip gun rights in the name of public safety?

    They said the same thing about quite a few people, how has that worked for you so far?

    Then as I said a "persona" is much more important than rights, lol.
