After Senate collapse, a background check for speaking out, but not for buying a gun

Petula Dvorak writes for The Washington Post: “It turns out, none of the deaths mattered to much of the U.S. Senate. Not the Batman fans sitting in a dark Colorado movie theater, not the folks waiting to chat with their congresswoman outside a Tucson Safeway, not the 15-year-old hanging out with friends in a Chicago park, not the college kids trying to master German at Virginia Tech, not even the 20 first-graders cowering in their classroom at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.”
