After the heartbreak and agony of Newtown, I had just the faintest stirring of hope that we’d reached a turning point on guns. Maybe, just maybe, we could put aside the intractable cultural battle over guns for just a few moments to put into place a few very basic, common sense controls like universal background checks.
I was wrong.

After a savage attack last week in a gay nightclub in Orlando that killed more people than any mass shooting in modern U.S. history, Connecticut and America are waking up with a gun hangover.
