Something might actually be happening on guns1

That is my sense too. I'm not sure why this last school shooting has had a different effect than, say, the last dozen or so school and out-of-school gun massacres. Maybe the non-gun nut majority has finally just reached its breaking point?

1- I say "might" because also "might not." In fact, I would say "likely not." As Paul Waldman says behind the link, the public pressure would need to continue and intensify before real shit happens. But for the first time in forever, I can actually imaging it occurring.
