Guns and Miracles

Great column today in the Washington Post by E. J. Dionne: "The Miracle on Guns."

He sees forces coming together to pass legislation on gun control, and he looks at the factors that are causing it:

  • Sandy Hook
  • President Obama's strength beginning a new term
  • Vice President Biden's skills and history in the legislature
  • The American public seeing through the claims of the NRA
  • Support from mayors and police chiefs
However, he notes that a ban on assault weapons may not make it into the legislation.
