I can't believe we blame Reagan and republicans for not doing gun legislation when our own party is almost as bad. Reagan for closing the mental hospitals as if they couldn't have reopened them in the following 35 years. I am not sticking up for the Repugs except to say they don't want gun regulations. We do! We've had ample opportunities in 35 years to do so. I guess complaining is easier.
