It’s difficult to argue with an argument made by the Washington Post’s Greg Sargent shortly after news had broken of the mass murder at a Connecticut school.
“If today’s shooting doesn’t prompt action on guns,” Sargent wrote on his Twitter account, “then nothing ever will.”
You’d think that the shocking horror of 20 children and six adults murdered at that school by a crazed gunman using a semiautomatic assault rifle with high-capacity ammunition magazines would prompt some action, either nationally or at least locally.
