Guns: a modest, bipartisan proposal.
There are four ex-presidents surviving and the incumbent. Two are Republicans, three Democrats. Surely, in light of the Connecticut massacre, they could issue a joint statement on the topic.
Skirting Second Amendment issues, it would tell the republic they speak or have spoken for, and a world appalled by what recurs here, how sick at heart and ashamed the now-ritual and repetitive presidential speeches after-the-fact make them, and how much we need a sensible effort to limit assault weapons and to address firearms access issues.
Nothing else seems to get the public's and other office holders' attention. This might.
