Mark Giffords calls out our craven, beholden political class for failing to address gun control.

Gabrielle Giffords’ husband to shooter: Political class “afraid to do something as simple as have a meaningful debate about our gun laws.” | The Political Carnival

Mark and Gabby Giffords

The key thing here is that we need to have an open, honest debate and it's just not happening. Meanwhile ...

Gun nuts are terrified Obama is going to take away their guns. But gun nuts are ignorant cowards who have failed to notice that Obama hasn't done anything except make it easier to bring guns into national parks. I don't understand the masterful politicking our president is doing here. Who exactly is he afraid of turning against him that isn't already against him? I assume he's gained some political capital by coddling the nutters, but it's not apparent he's spent that capital? If he hasn't used his wishy-washy positioning on gun control for some political gain, WTF is he doing?
