It's really quite simple. The reason there will be no gun control is because conservatives have been convinced by their radical philosophy, their political networks, like Fox, their leaders, like Rush, Anne and Sean, their lack of perspective brought on by a lack of education that the US is headed for a "communist takeover". They have been terrorized by other conservatives into believing "conservative's rights" are being taken away. They can't explain which rights or how, but they are very sure it's happening. When you point out it's conservatives who are the threat. Who want to take away women's rights, minority rights and freedom FROM religion, suddenly, they found something they don't believe. Conservatives believe they need automatic assault weapons for the unavoidable day when President Obama will declare "martial law". They might as well go back to building underground bunkers.
