It never really goes away, but it looks like the left has given up for now. My guess is that the political activists on the left realize it is an off putting debate to have in parts of the country they want to win in November. I just think it is telling that we had a school shooting in Kentucky just a couple of days ago and the media coverage has largely passed it by.
Part of that is because the shooting happened in Kentucky away from television cameras. But I cannot help but notice how quickly the media coverage moved on to other things instead of lingering as happened during the Obama years. Two students were killed, eighteen were wounded, and the shooter is in custody. Having the shooter alive and able to explain himself should be worthy of ongoing coverage, but the press has mostly left this all alone.
That this happened during Shot Show in Vegas, making it a perfect tie in to attack the gun industry, makes it even more notable that the media and left have already moved on from the story.
The left has decided to give it a rest. But make no mistake about it. Should the Democrats take back Congress, they'll be in fully swing trying to curtail the second amendment.
