    Congress didn't listen to traumatized parents of kindergartners years ago, so I suspect they wont listen to traumatized teens today. You should remember a couple of things though. First, this Cruz kid was an American Law Abider right up to the minute he started pulling the trigger on the combat weapon he legally bought. Secondly, in less years than has passed between their trauma and Sandy Hook, these traumatized teens will be voters. And while Congress may forget their trauma, I'm pretty certain they will not.

    I hear Scott is now grabbing at the Trump excuse #1 and blaming the FBI, who got 1 tip from an anonymous caller, while his own Sheriff's Dept got over 20. That's where State's Rights advocates who hate government interference go when they step in it. Blame the feds!

    Trump and his cult are blaming the FBI for not doing the sorts of things that the gun nuts explicitly don't want the feds to be able to do against gun owners.

    20% of voters are under thirty and even the terrible candidate HRC was able to win that vote by about 20 points.

    That margin will inevitably be larger vs. Trump in 2020.

    Banning guns won't solve the problem. Look what banning booze did in the 1920's.

    No one wants to ban guns just automatic killing machines Do you know the AR 15 was suggested for army use because it was a greater WOMD than the M 16?

    With 39 visits from the local police for violent behavior. Go figure.

    Then they may attempt to repeal/amend the 2nd Amendment, as will be their right as Americans.

    Surely the FBI was aware of the 39 previous calls. I blame the locals AND the FBI. Both dropped the ball.

    When someone says "I'm going to shoot the president", they in the least will get a visit from the USSS, and chances are very good you won't see them for a week or so, if then.

    If someone says "I'm going to shoot up a school", it seems that in general ... nothing happens. Whose failure is that?

    I would agree there are weapons that should not be sold to the civilian populace. And I have no problem with background checks, however keeping guns from people with mental issues is a bit sticky because of the privacy of medical records.
