Mitch McConnell, faced with the risk of allowing a vote on a widely supported gun bill that the NRA didn't like, pulled a pretty neat switcheroo. Give the old coot credit for being crafty.

Paul Ryan said he wouldn't dwell on the shocking lack of decorum in the House by Democrats who were staging a sit-in to call attention to gun violence. Then he very indecorously dismissed the action as a "publicity stunt" for the sole purpose of raising funds.

Oh good, the Senate is finally going to appear to do something about guns, and then fail. Then we can go back to having our real gun laws dictated to the states by the NRA, as the Founders intended.

The Supreme Court has declined to hear appeals to laws banning the sale or possession of assault-style rifles in Connecticut and New York. Guess that issue's settled, then.

Donald Trump clarified Monday that it was completely obvious that he never said people should carry guns at bars and nightclubs, even if it sure sounded like he'd said that. Where would you get such an impression, except from the things he said?

Former astronaut Mark Kelly and retired Gen. David Petraeus have formed a group to fight for stronger gun laws. We're looking forward to the Usual Suspects yelling these vets don't know anything about firearms.

Jo Cox, a member of Parliament, has been murdered. Americans who love their guns are excited by the chance to point out that British gun control laws can't stop every murder, so obviously laws are worthless.

Yes, apparently Bill O'Reilly is far too liberal now!

The American Medical Association announced it will push for increased research on gun violence. Get ready for the National Rifle Association to boycott health care.

Two perennial loons of Nevada politics saw their ambitions for national office thwarted Tuesday. Let's pour out a 40 for the political careers of Michele Fiore and Sharron Angle.

Donald Trump explained Hillary Clinton can't possibly support gay people, because she doesn't hate Muslims enough. He said other things that made even less sense, too.

Hillary Clinton has renewed her call for a federal ban on military-style weapons, and now we all get to argue forever over what an 'assault rifle' is and why everyone needs one, for freedom.

Good White Christian Americans need to step off and shut their yaps.

An Indiana man arrested on his way to LA's Pride parade with a car full of assault rifles and explosives was merely an ordinary gun freak who was violating probation, nothing to worry about there. Besides, a friend said he didn't have any ill will toward gay people. Relax, will you?

Nevada's race for the U.S. Senate looks to be a squeaker between two disciplined mainstream candidates. Fortunately, for comic relief, complete goofball Sharron Angle is also running, for the lulz.

Surprise, it is elected officials!
