Absolutely, and based on the continued STEEP reduction in the number of mass shootings and gun-related deaths in recent years, I think they're almost there!

Favorite answer: Absolutely, and based on the continued STEEP reduction in the number of mass shootings and gun-related deaths in recent years, I think they're almost there! Of course, they can't take all the credit, it was the strong bi-partisan support of Republicans particularly after the deaths of children at Newtown where they decided as parents & grandparents to tell the NRA enough was enough.
But, ultimately, it would have never been possible for Democrats to do w/o the leadership of President Hillary Rodham Clinton. Without her Executive Order voiding Posse Comitatus & ordering the military's domestic involvement in the collection and simultaneous arrest of those in non-compliance and/or deemed by Democrats to be "militia members", it would NOT have been achievable from either a legal or logistical standpoint to remove approximately 100 million individual guns/firearms previously considered to be the private property of tax-paying citizens protected by a Constitution for which hundreds of thousands have died. And, who could forget the peripheral economic benefit from taking away the guns such as the creation of thousands of high paying smelter jobs for illegal immigrants and convicted felons along with the thousands and thousands of tons of recycled steel which was; donated to 3rd world countries in Africa, used to construct safe foot bridges for easy access across the Rio Grande into Texas from Mexico, and to construct a monument in Washington D.C. in recognition of the Great Gun Take Away of Democrats.While there may be a handful of Democrats who want to "take away guns" and few more who don't think you need something that fires 100 rounds a second, it makes ZERO difference b/c it is impossible---absolutely impossible to do. Both legally and logistically. Think about the ridiculousness of my example and imagine the process of attempting the collecting of 100 million or whatever the actual number of individual firearms there are in the U.S. Also, Second & possibly 4th amendment aside, Republicans, nor conservative/rural Democrats are NEVER EVER going to pass any policy restricting guns....period. If children getting killed at Newtown didn't do it, nothing will. Other than possibly even more and/or a greater frequency of mass shootings, nothing will ever change with guns.
