Business as Usual, After a Pause

Via Melissa McEwan at Shakesville on 11 Feb, with her "Quote of the Day:

"We have a strong agenda coming up for next year, but of course a lot of that's going to be delayed as the Connecticut Effect has to go through the process."—NRA Lobbyist and former Wisconsin state senator Bob Welch (R), explaining at the NRA's Wisconsin State Convention this weekend that the NRA will "resume its push to weaken the nation's gun laws" just as soon as everyone gets over the Newtown school shooting.
20 dead kids = mere collateral damage associated with the nation's gun fetish. 
As a friend--who should know since he has lost a child (to an accident, not gun violence)--recently observed on the Newtown shootings:

"Why would you not want to do everything you could to perhaps save a child's life?"
