Last week the Thune Amendment was thankfully defeated. This inane legislation only had a chance of passing due to the extremism of the NRA/Birther crowd and the cowardice of the Blue Dog Democrats.

Why has the idea of sensible gun control legislation become so politically radioactive? Not even a recent run of deadly gun rampages (including the shooting deaths of four police officers in Oakland, the gunning down of three policemen in Pittsburgh, and the massacre of 13 people in Binghamton, New York), the second anniversary of Virginia Tech (the worst mass shooting in U.S. history), and the president of Mexico all but pleading for Barack Obama to do something about the tidal wave of bought-in-America assault weapons wreaking bloody havoc on his country have been able to create the political will to reinstate the assault weapons ban. Tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of Columbine; what better moment for the president to forget how difficult it would be to take on the NRA, and remember his campaign promise to push for a ban on these killing machines?
