There are not a lot of moments where everybody goes from Position A to Position Z. You need to build political power in order to enact important, controversial social change.
I think that we have made enormous progress over the last nine years, and I sort of look at Sandy Hook as the before and after moment.

From Sandy Hook to Buffalo: Ten years of failure on gun control
[I found the article fascinating. No hint of awareness that gun control might not help public safety, let alone thoughts it enables violent criminals. No hint of awareness that the Second Amendment protects a specific enumerated right and SCOTUS is about to slap down New York for their abuse of gun owners. No hint of awareness that since Sandy Hook, gun sales have exploded and the Antifa “summer of love” have changed the political landscape regarding gun ownership.—Joe]
