WHO ARE THE COWARDS NOW?

 

WHO ARE THE COWARDS NOW?

When Gabrielle Giffords was shot, I thought for sure Congress would rally for reform. After all, she was one of their own. Nope. Subsequently, there were other mass shootings, and cities with increases in individual homicides - the President's adopted hometown comes to mind - all provoking rhetorical rubbernecking - a passing, pensive pause replete with maligning monikers and divisive, derisive "debate," but no affirmative, ameliorative action. And then came Newtown, where most of the victims were very young children. Surely that would get our lawmakers to champion the cause, the politicians and babies "thing." And it did, for a while, until it didn't. Now we have the Navy Yard, a stone's throw from Capitol Hill, no pun intended, very close to our leaders' "home dome." During that massacre, and its immediate aftermath, the Senate went on "lockdown" - how metaphoric - and then left early. The House wasn't even in session.
Harry Reid says he doesn't have the votes to pass gun control legislation. If that is true, who are the cowards NOW?
