The push for gun control is all about spinning people's emotions. But in the end, gun control advocated concede they concede those in support of the Second Amendment were more passionate in guiding Senate action earlier this month.
“We talk about that as the passion gap, and we have to close that,” Ladd Everitt, a spokesman for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, tells in National Journal.
Everitt goes on to say the anti-gun crowd now has a package of legislation in Toomey-Manchin they can spring immediately to exploit the "next Newtown."
“Those things can help inform debate and galvanize people to act.”
The gun grabbers know that nothing in the defeated bills or amendments would have prevented the Newtown killings. Background checks were not a factor. The Sandy Hook gunman acquired his guns by killing his mother.
The gun control crowd didn't weigh reason or logic last time around. I fully expect it to double down on misinformation and emotion should another shooting occur.
Meanwhile, here's a broader look at some of the plotting underway to put gun control back on the front burner.
