Expect it to become political the way these things always are.
I never understood this argument. There's a point in maintaining some common decency by giving those involved or directly affected by these things time to mourn and respect their feelings, but why should this not get political? Bad stuff is bad. It happens, but we don't want it to happen again. So we try and learn from it and take steps to prevent a repeat in the future. If a plane crashes, we find out why and change aviation rules if necessary. If a bridge collapses, we investigate how and change construction guidelines. If a healthcare system fails thousands and kills many of them, we determine the cause and alter policy. This is no different. It gets political because it by all means should. And maybe the conclusion ends up being that it was a freak incident that could in no way have been prevented so that no rules should be changed. But that discussion should still be had. Policies are shaped by and based on events. This is just how it is.

It's true, but due to the political wrangling it won't get fixed, the Republican are still not going to do anything, and when a democratic leader decide to do something, people will forget. We will see arguments today for better regulation or better mental health spending to be used in the future as attack ads when people forget about this event. To show these very people as anti-second amendment.

So a GOP introduced bill to ban stocks on guns could be introduced as early as today. I'm shocked anything might actually be happening, especially on the GOP side.

Of course it's not really going to change anything, but anything is better than simply nothing.

What do you mean ban stocks? Bump stocks or outright ban all stocks?

Now's the time to buy guns and arm yourself before tyranny takes over.

NK was here. Everything I post is dead serious, no jokes.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
