Is there a threshold of dead bodies that must pile up before we, as a nation, are willing to put all options on the table in trying to find solutions to problems, or will the principle of “…from my cold, dead fingers” apply until the last American is left standing?
I’m speaking about any right in general, not just guns.
This kind of says it all - an NRA ‘A’ rated GOPer suddenly backs gun control measures. His daughter was across the street when the murders in Dayton were committed. So suddenly he is concerned about guns…
