    this is not a close question. tribe clearly is correct, as anyone who has read the decisions understands.

    it's time to take ideology out of this discussion and for congress to do something meaningful to attempt to reduce gun violence, even if there is no single "perfect" solution. to do nothing would be a violation of oaths of office.
