I thought that the Newton tragedy was going to be the last straw. Now I see that that the fear mongers are prevailing and our spineless politicians are kowtowing to the NRA and gun manufacturing lobby. It will take another massive tragedy (or three or four) before Americans wake up to the costs of living in a gun-saturated nation.If the Newtown massacre and the deaths of innocents every single day doesn't give us results, I'm not sure anything will. Maybe if the media continues to highlight the efforts to stop gun violence - there are many, many groups now including Moms Demand Action and the $$$ inserted by Bloomberg/Mayors Against Gun violence http://www.demandaction.org/ who do seem to be in it for the long haul. I thought something would happen after Va Tech or Aurora. Did you know that Va Tech is the deadliest shooting incident by a single gunman in U.S. history? The 6th anniversary is in just about 2 weeks.graphics for illustration, which tells a story at a glancehttp://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/crime/2012/1...How Many People Have Been Killed by Guns Since Newtown?Slate partners with @GunDeaths for an interactive, crowdsourced tally of the toll firearms have taken since Dec. 14.
