    ...in wake of such tragedies. Even Wayne LePierre, who's got a reputation as a loudmouthed asshole, goes silent in the wake of such events.

    In this case, however, I'd like to think they're in utter panic mode. This may well be the tipping point here. 20 children, all of them 6 or 7 years old, practically blown to pieces by an assault rifle that may have been illegal under the expired assault weapons ban? If that is the case, the NRA has a P.R. disaster on their hands the likes of which they have never seen.

      considering right now:  "This inexcusable tragedy could have been prevented if only Connecticut had permitted concealed carry in it's schools as Michigan does."

      It is gut-wrenchingly sick which is why they will at least be considering this.  The arrogant assholes will never say the right thing:   "We have gone too far.  Guns are too easily available and we will do everything we can to prevent what guns we have from falling into the wrong hands."

      There is way too much money involved for them to even consider that.  It is so sick even now I feel like vomiting.
