Think you know the Second Amendment?

Great piece by Jeffrey Toobin:

Bottom-line: what happens post Sandy Hook is in our hands; the more public pressure we heap on politicians, the more likely "meaningful reform" will be had.

It's easy to be cynical and say the NRA has a stranglehold on this policy discussion, but if the recent reactions from Joe Scarborough, Joe Manchin, and other pro-gun politicians are indicators (as well as pro-reform John Yarmuth), the time is ripe for meaningful change.

As I am currently doing so, I encourage all of you to write to your local political leaders. I will post my letter up here soon.

Let's make sure this sort of thing never happens again.
