As a gun violence prevention activist, I could not agree more with your comments on the absurdity of this reaction by the feds, rather than turn to a stronger regulation of firearms in the US. President Obama has done all he is within his power to do to stem the tide of Americans killed by our fellow- citizen terrorists on our own soil —except perhaps declare an all-out state of emergency, because that’s what this is. A Republican-controlled Congress has decided to block him at every hint of regulation and instead to propel efforts by the NRA and other gun extremists to put guns in the hands of every man, woman and child in America, to be carried anywhere, anytime. Yes, the great experiment of the NRA has failed and we’ve had millions of lives stolen as a result. But American mothers are taking them head on, and we’re winning. We just need to win faster.
