Nice timing on their part. Accepting mass shootings on the 5th anniversary of the slaughter of 20 six-year-olds. Classy.

It's a weird passivity that runs counter to the gun rights argument that having a gun ensures that you are the prime agent of your life. We're told that without a gun, criminals and government would run amok, raping and slaughtering and treading on you. Having a gun protects you from that. But apparently free access to guns still means raping and slaughtering (tho maybe less treading). So having more guns won't reduce the amount of killing after all, that we're all basically prey. Which sounds pretty pessimistic and dystopic, but, no, that's actually part of a free society. Just the way Jefferson et al drew it up, right, originalists?

That would be a good start.
