The Senate and House is the same way. While they represent millions, they are one voice doing so. So the right have to come up with something that will get the fence riding left to go with a bill or idea. And generally, anyone will go with an idea of enforcing current methods and laws on the books if those methods and laws were what failed to prevent someone from getting a weapon to carry out their massacre.
What you have to remember is that the Sudetenland is never enough.
This is not about preventing crime.
This is not about preventing "mass shootings".
This is about creating a governmental monopoly on the means of armed force.
That's why David Dinkins once called for more gun control (in NYC) after a STABBING... with a SCREWDRIVER.

If you want me to "respect cops as a whole", you'll need to get them [as a whole] to stop supporting cops who commit crimes against citizens. I've never seen an NRA member (never mind dozens) publicly support Dylann Roof. I've seen LOTS of cops support Tony Abbate.
