Last night’s Town Meeting on gun control was a rare moment of thoughtful debate in an otherwise crowded field of overheated rhetoric. Will any minds be changed? Most folks think not. Polls consistently show a large majority of Americans support the President’s move to expand background checks. The same polls show that most respondents don’t feel the new measures will make a difference. That’s just what the NRA wants. They want us to believe resistance is futile. But President Obama isn’t buying that. He knows that if only one family is saved, one community spared … then it was worth doing.
