Is Gun Control Dead?

According to law enforcement sources, Jared Lee Loughner, the alleged gunman who shot Rep. Giffords and killed five others, including Federal judge John M. Roll, used a Glock 19 - 9mm, Semi-Automatic Pistol that was legally purchased on Nov. 30 at a place called "The Sportsman's Warehouse in Tucson".  This gun and its high-capacity magazine would have been illegal under the Federal Assault Weapons Ban that that an NRA controlled bipartisan Congress allowed to expire in 2004.

It's true, the NRA with its Minions and Million$ has effectively shut down any real chance of gun control in this country.

Unfortunately, it seems, no politician has the guts to stand up for common sense laws or restrictions. 

So while the partisan bickering continues about Sarah Palin and others, our attention is successfully being diverted from the real issue, which is gun control.

Even  Ronald Reagan  both as Governor of California and President of the United States understood the need for effective commonsense gun control.

Remember when Social Security and Medicare were thought to be the "Third Rail" of politics that no one dare touch?  Well not anymore!  Politicians from both sides of the aisle are talking about changes and restrictions. 

But No One Dare - Speak about Gun Control!

No One Dares even think about prohibiting, obviously "Insane People" from buying handguns.

Apparently, we are more comfortable with Mass Killings, like Tucson, Virginia Tech and Columbine than we are with having a sensible conversation about high-powered assault rifles and semi-automatic concealed weapons.
