Quote of the day: You may say he's a dreamer

Steve M. at No More Mister Nice Blog knows why we're never going to curb gun violence in America:
Imagine if, after 9/11, we considered and rejected laws tightening the screening of airline passengers at the federal level. Imagine if we specifically rejected efforts focused on keeping deadly weapons off flights. Imagine if some localities tried to tighten restrictions on the carrying of weapons by airline passengers, but the politicians advocating those measures were hounded into retirement by angry voters. Imagine if, for every locality that managed to pass such measures, there were a dozen that actually loosened restrictions on carrying weapons onto flights. Imagine if some localities actually tried to prevent enforcement of federal flight safety laws at the local level.
There's more. He's pissed. And he's not the only one.
