    Democrats and Republicans are still talking about background checks. How long are we (the people) going to be stupid enough to fall for it?

    We'll probably fall for it forever.

    But if the democrats had 53 seats in the Senate instead of the treasonous cult, we would probably have some sort of gun control bill on trump's desk, waiting for his veto. I believe that much. The real problem right now is the incredible equivocating on the part of most democrats, and from what I can tell almost all of the ones who are running for president. Some are saying things like "congress" needs to act. Some are even more generic than that. What we need is for every democrat who would vote "yes" on gun control in the House and Senate to publicly put the blame where it belongs, on the republicans. The message needs to be clear every time they bloviate on the issue; If you want legislation to make these mass shooting and all the needless gun crime less likely, you MUST NOT vote for a republican. When the TV talking head asks why, when polls show an overwhelming number of Americans in support of a number of changes to our gun laws, nothing can get done, BLAME THE REPUBLICANS!

    But none of that is going to happen. And neither will meaningful changes to our gun laws. Sometimes I think it's a conspiracy between the parties to give them a convenient issue to gin up their respective bases and keep getting re-elected. We've had two fvking members of the house shot and d am n near killed in the last decade, and nothing has changed. I'm telling you, if you want to see meaningful gun control, you may as well just hope that one of these days a mass killer doesn't go into a nightclub and rein death on innocent victims, or go into a church or take aim at a county music festival, or shoot up a school and kill little sweet children a dozen at a time. No, that 5h!t needs to happen when the house or senate is in session, and 40 or 50 representatives or senators get slaughtered while C-SPANs cameras capture the whole thing live. That is likely what it will take.

    Do we care enough to do something about mass shootings?

    I think a good portion of the American people do care. But not quite enough to vote out their republican senators and representatives.

    There's still a disconnect between people's policy preferences and their political affiliation. Dems have large majorities on virtually every issue yet people keep merrily slitting their own throat. Maybe they'll learn but I'm not holding my breath.

    It's a mixture of fear of the unknown + living in the conservaderp media bubble. "Sure, that Dem guy talks a good game about background checks and mental health. Once he/she's in office though, I bet they vote in lockstep with San Fran Nan and the ATF will come take muh gunz. Not to mention raise muh taxes! Say no to T3H SOCIALIZUM!" *punches ticket for septuagenarian Pubbie incumbent's 17th career term*

    It will only take one shooting for the gun laws to change. When an Islamic man shoots up a school, mall or church and massacres white people. Don't laugh. It happened in 1967 when the Black Panthers started to arm themselves. The Mumford Act was signed by that militant socialist from California, Governor Ronald Reagan.

    That already happened in San Bernardino, and nothing has been done in the past 4 years.

    If an Islamic man shooting up an army base didn't move the needle, or has been pointed out already a pair of Islamic fundementalists shooting up a social workers holiday party, why would the next follower of Islam shooting up people be any different? People I am telling you, NOTHING will move republican politicians off their as ses. NOTHING. The only way we will see meaningful changes to gun laws is with democratic party majorities in the House and Senate and a democratic party occupant in the White House.

    You can be damm sure if the parties were reversed, that's what the Republicans would be doing.

    A lot of people actually think this. A lot. And it is why we have a congress that does nothing.

    Those were Socialists and hippies from California. They deserved to die. They weren't real Muricans!

    Basically, you need a mass shooter targeting Republican politician's family members. But he needs to be a white supremacist. Only thing that will do it.
