Feature, not bug

"I'm walking out of school today on the one month anniversary of Parkland school massacre.  I wasn't learning anything there, anyway, y'know?  I'm upset that something like that can happen then the politicians do nothing.  What more has to happen for those people to ban all the bad guns, y'know?  Besides, those detergent pods ain't gonna, like, eat themselves, and the school resource officer will no longer let us bring them into the building for lunch."
Yeah, that 'do nothing' bit?  That's a feature, not a bug.  What the politicians are doing are holding the line.  Their most important job is to defend the rights of their constituents.  NOT getting stampeded into more violation is second best.  First best is to expand our rights and remove legacy violations.

That'd be great.  NOW.  Expanding gun owner rights.  Pass Reciprocity, McConnell.  There's a lot of work to do after that.  Finish that labor and we'll take a look at the 4th and 5th and 10th Amendments, too.

But I am glad they give you young idiots the runaround.  You people aren't that bright, to tell you the truth.  A product of your youth and inexperience, but don't worry, you have plenty of time to get old and dumb.  You are also a lotta astroturf, willingly, admittedly, doing the bidding of your money men.  Who's motivations are... not in the interests of America as we know it.  A stalking horse for bigger things, perhaps, besides just the gun bans.  But, heck some of you want that transformation (well not you, you).  But you do have to camouflage that desire in something else...  like civil rights violations you can maybe get people to go along with after a tragedy.

I suspect that banning guns is considered a step towards a stronger (read more repressive) government run by them, and maybe outright communism.

They recognize the threat that civilian owned guns are to them, so they want to get rid of them like Russia did in the early 1920's.
