The forcible citizen disarmament fanatics do not intend to let the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary atrocity go unexploited--even openly acknowledging that "exploiting" this horrific mass murder has been their intention since before the little bodiers were cold. As Representative Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) was quoted in the Washington Times:
Mr. Nadler was asked whether the Newtown tragedy could be the turning point in many Democrats’ longstanding struggle to enact stronger gun laws.
“I think we will be there if the president exploits it, and otherwise we’ll go on to the next” incident, Mr. Nadler said.
Still, even with bodies of 20 kids and the courageous, devoted adults who died trying to save them, the forcible citizen disarmament lobby cannot get everything they want (with "everything" being a total ban on private ownership of firearms).
Even the most ideologically extreme among them know this, and so now, the main focus is on what they think they can pass in both houses of Congress. At the moment, that seems to narrow things down to three main goals.
That's not to say that there will not be a wide variety of other proposed new infringements on that which shall not be infringed (and indeed the anti-gun bills already introduced attack the Constitutionally guaranteed, fundamental human right of the individual to keep and bear arms from an impressively large number of angles). Still, most of those are little more than political theater.
