The latest incident of mass murder, in San Bernardino, Calif., should underscore the point that while the Republican Party continually asserts that we should resist rash regulatory controls of guns after a mass murder, nothing ever changes. The mass killings go on.
The American right wing is now the most naked of emperors. This is the same group of people who decry government spending. Do they think that an incident of the kind that occurred in San Bernardino is an incidental expense? Or in several scenes of horror in Colorado? Or in Sandy Hook?
The Republicans in Congress used to be the most ardent defenders of law and order. Now they appear to turn a blind eye to the grossest forms of disorder, the worst violations of the law. The Republicans in Congress also, to a person, proclaim themselves to be “pro-life.” Really?
