Mayor Michael Bloomberg set the tone when he urged the two presidential candidates to outline their policies with respect to federal gun laws. And now, Sen. Frank Lautenberg's (D-N.J.) office is saying that he plans to reintroduce legislation that would curtail the ability of a shooter to fire at length without reloading.I guess it's never too early to start politicking a tragedy.
"If reports are correct and a high-capacity gun magazine was used to commit these awful murders, Senator Lautenberg will absolutely renew his effort to limit the availability of this dangerous firearm attachment," Lautenberg's communications director Caley Gray told The Huffington Post.
One thing I am curious about is this: Of the many Democrats and Democrat apologists who dismissed Operation #fastandfurious (which is responsible for hundreds of deaths), how many of them will manage to muster up outrage over this shooting? I'm going to say 100% of them.
