If we can all just hurry up and process the "Connecticut effect"
A top lobbyist for the National Rifle Association (NRA) explains why its legislative agenda is on hold:
We have a strong agenda coming up for next year, but of course a lot of that’s going to be delayed as the “Connecticut effect” has to go through the process.
So if everyone could just hurry up and "process" the brutal murder of 20 children and six adults, the NRA can get back to their full-time campaign against common sense solutions to curb gun violence.

So come on, get over it already, people!

Or make a difference by helping candidates like Robin Kelly, running for congress in IL-02, who will fight the NRA. Join the 4,000+ who have already opted to send the NRA a message and contribute to Kelly today!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
