Our ridiculous boy’s coat.

“I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and institutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors.” -Thomas Jefferson

The Second Amendment is us still wearing our childhood coat and it has to be modernized. But we’ve seen little kids die, and movie-goers die (twice), plus many others, and now a reporter live on television die, and nothing changes. We need an organization that can match and counter the NRA for smart gun reform.
