Most of the country has moved on and left Sandyhook behind.
Just have to figure out what to do about the building.
Biden has, however, started the sterile consultation process with Walmart and the NRA at the table. Walmart (country's largest gun seller) apparently wasn't going to show but were somehow 'persuaded'.
Cuomo though, seems ready to take on the mantle of leadership on the issue:
Jon Stewart certainly delivered a solid punch on the subject...right down to having his guest Stanley McChrystal...the man with the plan for Afghanistan comment on the need to restrict the presence of assault weapons.
http://tv.msnbc.com/2013/01/09/the-d...ontrol-debate/The Comedy Central host slammed right-wing conservatives for blaming “non-gun causes of gun violence” after recent shootings; he showed clips of pro-gun pundits blaming video games, Hollywood and even personal sin instead of discussing ways to address gun violence directly.
He compared the gun control issue to drunk driving, pointing out the decline of these deadly vehicular incidents and arguing that the same change can be made to the gun culture through tighter and better enforcement of laws.
