The juggernaut has been set into motion. We gun owners have turned a blind eye to the previous mass shooting and taken an attitude of "..prying it out my cold dead fingers". We failed to be proactive in keeping guns"... out of their crazy paws". Now "...out of my cold dead fingers", has become a rear guard position. The gun ban folks are riding on a tsunami of support and are getting lobbying funds fast. Mark Kelly and Gabby Giffords organization is already up $ 7 million in two days and counting. I doubt the NRA and its minions will be able to bring the juggernaut to a complete stop. But, if the political game is played with savvy and finesse it may be possible to steer the onrush In a more favorable direction.

In short, such an idea is DOA for such a politically charged issue.
