Sometimes the right thing to do isn't the instinctive knee-jerk reaction. Sometimes the right thing to do is nothing. Despite claims to the contrary in the MSM, Americans, want no further infringement on our constitutional rights and demand that current laws be enforced. Nothing being proposed would have prevented the Sandy Hook or Aurora killings. There are laws on the books already that require background checks for sales by licensed dealers. Anything beyond that is unenforceable. Adding more restrictions on top of the thousands already on the books won't make anyone safer. Lack of enforcement is the problem. There is probably no bigger "hot button" issue than gun control and defenders of the Second Amendment are the "mother-of-all" single-issue voters and have long memories. Elected officials at all levels should consider that fact carefully before stepping on the third rail.
