Somebody was wondering yesterday what it would take to get gun control legislation in America. What would be the “trigger?” What would be so bad that we changed our mind?
They said that maybe shooting a senator would do it, but then it was pointed out that lots and lots of Congresspeople have been shot and it never seems to change anything. In fact, the only time it changed anything in recent memory was the Brady Bill, which was named after the guy who got shot by John Hinkley Jr. during his assassination attempt on Reagan.*
