I, too, feel that a change to the constitution is not a change we need right now. The issue is solely with NRA policy and the impact they have on legislators. Were Wayne LaPierre to be taken down by a "wide stance" scandal it would probably save thousands of lives over the long run.

I'm probably older than you. I fired my first gun around 30 years ago. Back then, rednecks with lots of guns were crazy-ass deviants. now? Now we acquit the fuckin' Bundys. It used to be that guns were something you shot. Now they might as well be a fuckin' kirpan.

We don't fix that by changing the laws. We fix that by changing the culture and the angry white "values voters" own that conversation.
