Michael Bloomberg is right, but it doesn’t matter. Wayne La Pierre’s NRA will never let gun control happen. And no American politician in current existence has the cojones to make him.
That’s a sad commentary on our ought and paid for system of governance, which, by the way, is getting worse, thanks to Citizens United. But it’s invariably true. Even the Colorado movie theater massacre won’t budge the system.
And the whole world knows it. Shame on us.
