Nothing will change with that attitude It took a long time to get here. It will take a long time to get it "right."
I think you're basically right, and that this is an issue for the long haul. In the end, people will make it clear that we have had it with crap like this, and it will become impossible to support anything other. But, as you say, it will be a while.
Unfortunately, I don't think anything is going to change at least anytime soon. The USA must realize what everybody with an IQ
in excess of two digits has already realized: That many parts of the constitution are bullshit. I hate Bill Maher as a person but I agree with him saying that the founding fathers could not have foreseen a civilized society with police, the FBI, CIA
and the US army. They could also not have foreseen Montana or Vermont - states that have the same representation as California or New York.
If you want things in the USA to change, you will need to address the issue at its core which is the constitution. Furthermore, there is no way around establishing a multi party system. Those 8% of gun nuts need their own ''gun party'' to vote on this particular issue, so that other people who feel socially conservative about gay marriage, abortion or whatnot, could vote for a party that focuses on that. In the end, parties with similar ideas would form a coalition.
But until such a time has come the Democrats can't do anything about guns because their voters don't feel strongly enough about gun control that they would not vote for them over not passing it, while the Republicans are all paid by the NRA
All guns need to be confiscated and destroyed in a similar manner to what Canda, the UK, Australia and a ton of other countries have successfully done in the past. Every other demand is unreasonable.
