"The Problem With Gun Control Politics"
I understand the argument here that the Dems who voted against background checks can be forgiven, but it was a compromise bill by a quite conservative Dem. Sometimes, you have to follow the team. Also, reject that it was so very trivial. Did the Newtown families think that? At the very least, it had real symbolic effect as a sign that the gun power has to compromise just a tad. Assuming it would fail in the House also is a tad too defeatist.
