Maybe Republicans Should Try Being Popular

The focus on the insane is insane. Guns are not the only instrument of murder. Crazy people drive cars. Let's do a background check before you buy a car or a pocket knife or a baseball bat. Background checks are worthless. Anyone that wants a gun can buy a gun. What part of "shall not infringe" is hard to understand?

Republicans don't control the U.S. Senate and they don't have the presidency. Instead of wasting time and energy in doomed efforts to defeat President Obama's Cabinet nominees or sucking up to illegal aliens, why not focus on issues where Republicans can be off-the-charts popular while forcing Democrats into taking stupid positions?

After the slaughters at Virginia Tech, Aurora, Colo., Tucson, Ariz., and Newtown, Conn., every sentient person knows we need to do something about institutionalizing the mentally ill and -- at the very least -- keeping guns out of their hands.

That happens to be impossible right now....
