Deep in our hearts we Americans see ourselves as gun slinging cowboys. Most of us will never level a gun at another human being. But notice how we will snipe each other at the drop of a hat on social media. Or go to court over the most petty matters (they say lawsuits became popular just as gun duels went out of fashion in the mid 1800's). 

One day we will abandon guns and then change the law to reflect that. Hopefully not because have fallen in love with another more devious weapon. Killer drones, maybe?

Biden's and the AG's speech about gun control in the rose garden today was well done, they make the case(s) quite well. I only worry that Biden's use of the phrase "this is only the start" is a misstep that will make things much less likely to actually change. I would focus on the two or three most popular changes that can be made nationally and emphasize how that is all of it and nothing further. I don't think given the track record you can afford an 'only the beginning' wide ranging objective.
