Awwww...

Who's the sad clown?

A commenter at Unc's extends the theory to explain the sudden full-court press at ABC:
The anti-gunners are very frustrated with having been left behind in the wake of Obama’s victory. They had thought that they had won, with full Democratic Party control of Congress and the White House, but now find themselves thoroughly stymied.
They're obviously filling the news cycle as much as they can. If a stickup artist wings two people at a 7-11, it's going to get national airtime as a mass shooting, and if someone with Dissociative Identity Disorder smokes a gun barrel, it'll be trumpeted in the headlines as a multiple homicide. They are not going to stop the constant barrage until they get what they want, or are distracted by something shiny, like a celebrity wedding.

The first day that goes by without me feeling that urge will be an indication to me that my childhood Millennarian dreams have come true.
