Gun Control? The dead have not even been buried yet...

Well, we've had another shooting, a particularly heinous one. An elementary school of all places.
Another nut job who should have been euthanized (or at least incarcerated in a padded cell) before he reached adolescence has seen fit to kill 20 kindergarten aged students along with some teachers and administrators and before the blood had dried, before we even learned the shooter's name and circumstances, the hoplophobes began beating the anti-gun drum again.
We freedom lovers of course came to the defense of the Constitution and in doing so are being told we are callous and ruthless.  We have no soul they say. 
The media immediately pounced on the opportunity to push their anti-gun agenda, and went on to accuse the pro-gun crowd of "politicizing" a tragedy! 
Those people calling for gun control to stop these attacks are the same people who were calling for gun control yesterday, the day before that and the day before that. The already have their agenda and it is not to stop these attacks, it is to remove what they feel is a blight on the Constitution: the Second Amendment.
Now, had the left asked for a meaningful conversation that included such topics as: Judicial reform, sentencing reform, incarceration reform, funding for mentally disturbed people, locking up mentally disturbed people. The pro-gun crowd would welcome the discussion, but no, that is not what they are asking for. They only want to take our guns.
So it will be up to the Right Wing to find a solution as the misguided Left continues to see the problem as misunderstood people who shouldn't have access to weapons, when instead these "misunderstood people" shouldn't have access to other people.
