Why would in the 200+ years of our country's existence before today, legislatures all across the country not do anything about guns? What has changed today that makes you think every politician until now has sat on their hands doing absolutely nothing?<quoted text>
Is your solution the same as the NRA which is do nothing, let violent crime continue as is, and to pipe as many guns as possible onto the streets for criminals to use?
If you guys don't have active ideas and proposals to reduce violence then don't be surprised when proposals by others become bills and laws. But 'do nothing' is not acceptable.
Here is a hint, they haven't. Laws have been passed, laws are already on the books. The laws aren't enforced and people violate them. Enforcing laws is not doing nothing when doing nothing means not enforcing the existing laws. If you think something special needs to be done now and that involves creating a new law, you would have to be completely ignorant of existing laws and think that no other politician has ever seen the need to do something. That is a serious break from reality.
