It can be done,” she said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Sorry, but no it can't, and it won't. It's at least 50 years too late, and it hasn't got a chance in hell of passing anyway.

Time to think of something else that might help.

I don't think it will go anywhere, but I commend her for trying.

She knows it'll die in committee. This is read meat for those who fantasize that we can get rid of guns.

Where does her bill say anything about getting rid of all guns? You seem to be on the same wavelength as the NRA, who see Obama and the Dems as "wanting to take all our guns away." It's a specious argument: some gun control and regulation (registration, licenses, etc.) won't deny most Americans the right to own firearms and it certainly won't gut the 2nd Amendment.

It's not as if such policies have been complete failures everywhere else. I'm sure you know that, since you must be familiar with the firearm injury/death rates in other developed countries as opposed to the US.
