It seems like every time a gun violence incident reaches the national media, a bunch of Democrats take to the nation's airways to decry the number and easy access of guns in this country. And, every time, there are calls for stricter gun control laws they blame the National Rifle Association and the Republicans for blocking additional control.
Of course, this was the case after the killing of a Roanoke, Virginia TV reporter and her cameraman. Now, just days after, presidential-candidate Hillary Clinton vows to be this nation's gun-control president. Bernie Sanders, the other Democrat running, says that he too is strong on gun control.
But here's the problem with Democrats and gun control. They could have done something about it in 2009 and 2010 when they controlled both houses of Congress and the Presidency, but they did nothing, and sometimes I think they "do nothing" on certain things, like gun control, so they can keep it alive as another key election issue. Yet, they know that America backs gun ownership and that if they actually blocked it, they could lose votes.
