It comes from the aspect of "something must be done" ... and that something is the same thing each side of the argument was pushing for before Newtown and will be pushing for well into the future. Those who believe that more guns is the answer will push for more guns. Those who believe that less guns is the answer will push for less guns. Sigh ... I wish that circular arguments on non-2nd amendment sites made a difference. Thanks for everyone's participation in this thread. Please keep the families of the victims and first responders of the Newton tragedy (and previous events) in your thoughts this holiday season.
