    Conservatives are abandoning the NRA. Rupert Murdoch is calling for gun control.

    The NRA realizes it’s over, which is why they released the statement they did yesterday. They don't want to end up like Big Tobacco (another, seemingly invincible, special interest).

    It's all over but the shouting. Semiautomatic weapon ban for starters. Clip size. Gun show loophole. It's all on the table.

    Nobody sane is going to stand up and say Sandy Hook is the price of freedom in America. They'll set themselves up to be the new Todd Akin.

    The wind is blowing and the politicians will follow it.
    Keep up the pressure.  It's finally happening.

      But a recent facebook dialogue with many folks I grew up with in Kentucky doesn't suggest the NRA or the associated talking points are going away anytime soon.

      I really hate to say it, but something far worse would need to happen to really break the back of resistance.  

      I'm a mushroom. Kept in the dark and fed....you know
