From the Chron’s Texas on the Potomac blog:
Despite Obama’s efforts, Texas Republicans feeling no pressure to enact new gun laws
Well, good. The only pressure they should be feeling is from their constituents, who are probably telling them to tell the president to take his gun control laws and blow them out his arse.
And damned if that speech wasn’t some grade-A blood dancing. “Shame on us if we’ve forgotten.” No, dude, shame on you for using the deaths of innocents to advocate for laws that wouldn’t have stopped their killer anyway.
After all, he didn’t get those guns legally. They were legally owned anyway. He killed his mother and broke into her safe. (h/t Jeff in comments)
