The default Republican nightmare has at last come to pass.
In a marked display of humanity, President Obama pledged Tuesday to take whatever executive action he can to stem the unconscionable flow of guns throughout the United States, which has us awash in death, fear and disability.
While no one is expecting a sea change of regulation, it is nevertheless a start, and an important public condemnation of this ongoing idiocy.
Predictably, the gun lobby peed its collective pants.
God bless you, Mr. President.
