The Onion echoes him in, "'No Way to Prevent This,' Says Only Nation Where This Regularly Happens." Last year, they likewise posted helpful tips for politiicians working on gun control. They begin: "Write gun control legislation. Pass gun control legislation."
"Consider if overwhelming public support for a particular measure is something you want to be associated with...Put on your stupid little suit, run a comb through your greasy hair, go to the U.S Capitol building, pick up your fancy little gold pen, and pass a fucking gun control bill."
