But our next conversation on guns won't be like the least 20 years or so, I don't think.

I don't think there is any evidence to back up this claim. Rahm Emanuel...yes now Chicago Mayor (geez to think of those poor people in his grip) Emanuel is on record as steering the Justice Dept. against trying to reinstate the Assault Weapons ban in the early part of O's Admin.

The fix, as with most everything else, remains in.

One immediate response I have is that Emanuel isn't necessarily in a position to determine how all this shakes out - and as far as I know, he has been pretty silent. On top of that Chicago is looking especially bad in terms of gun crime and shootings these days, so one would expect the response to him opposing regulation would be something like... "clean your own house." This is also why I think the President, while hesitant, probably won't resist increased regulation.

Second, I don't think we know what the next conversation will look like until we finish having this one. Let's see in a month or two what Congress does or doesn't pass and why.

But yes, this could all end badly. However, I do think, as the point of this post, that we're already hearing people talk about all of this a lot differently than they did before Newtown happened.
