It appears to most everyone now that the long-held stance of the NRA and Republicans of resisting legislation on background checks, letting the assault weapon ban sunset in 2004, and resistance to intelligent restraints on the right to bear arms has been dead and deadly wrong. And President Obama’s plea for Congressional action after Newtown, and the young folks’ pleas after Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School look wiser and more prescient every day.
