Top Democrat will seek new gun law in next Congress
NBC News: The Newton, Connecticut, school shooting is prompting a number of politicians to speak out for more gun control. California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat, says she intends to introduce a gun control bill on the first day of the next Congress. “It can be done,” she said on “Meet the Press” Sunday.
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is also among politicians calling for more gun control, saying it should be President Obama’s number one agenda.

Could this become the issue that defines Obama’s second term? The problem here is the “fade” inevitable with large stories like Sandy Hook. Wonkblog notes that media coverage of gun control tends to fade about a month after a major shooting occurs. “But might this time be different? Perhaps. After all, the slaughter of innocent schoolchildren has no doubt gripped the media and public in a way that even the attempted murder of a member of Congress didn’t,” Danny Hayes writes.
