    What kind of action?

      It's what the UK eventually did after they had their version of this shooting. It was called the Dunblane massacre, and also involved more than a dozen K-aged children killed by a gunman (along with their teacher) in a primary school.

      It's meaningful action. It leads to change.

      Call the head of the NRA to the White House for either a public ass chewing. Barring that, twisting his arm to say that after five years of propaganda about Obama coming for their guns, the NRA has hurt his ability to actually do something, so YOU Mr. NRA head, are going to step up and propose serious changes to the gun laws.
      Put it back on them if he would be reflexively resisted...

    •  Ban all handguns and semiautomatic weapons (0+ / 0-)

      whether they are handguns or long guns. Strict control on bolt action or single shot rifles designed for hunting. Strict control of ammo. Testing for mental stability and background checks for past violence. And hard prison time for breaking of these laws...

      I guess Hell's just the place for "kiss ass politicians" who pander to assholes.
