Anti 2A vultures wasted no time in making use of the Conn. tragedy:

Quote:New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a prominent advocate of gun control, issued a statement on Friday criticizing the president Congress for failing to take action on the issue.

'President Obama rightly sent his heartfelt condolences to the families in Newtown. But the country needs him to send a bill to Congress to fix this problem,' Bloomberg said in a statement.

'Calling for 'meaningful action' is not enough. We need immediate action. We have heard all the rhetoric before. What we have not seen is leadership - not from the White House and not from Congress.'

The gun control debate was reignited in the immediate aftermath of Friday's shooting, as every major TV network gathered panels of journalists and gun control experts to discuss the political implications for Washington.

'It is hopefully — we say this every single time we cover one of these things - a line in the sand,' said MSNBC's Alex Wagner, an outspoken liberal, during a live broadcast. 'There has got to be some kind of measurable change, some kind of reaction. One would hope that there will be some political capital to reform the way in which we handle gun and gun violence in this country.'

USA Today's Washington bureau chief Susan Page wondered on NBC: 'Is this the tipping point? I don't know the answer to that.'

The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, named after James Brady and one of the largest national organisations promoting stricter firearm laws, was urging people on Friday to sign an online petition supporting their cause.

'Another day, another horrific shooting eating away at our collective peace of mind - this time at a school in Connecticut,' said Brady Campaign President Dan Gross. 'What matters is not what we do after the sensational tragedies. It's what we do between them - to make the voice of the American public heard.'
