Mourning Joe: Newtown 'Changes Everything'

Joe Scarborough on his MSNBC show this morning offered a lengthy monologue, almost an apology, for his longheld views on guns and support for the NRA, saying "everything has changed" since Friday.
It must change everything. We all must begin anew and demand that Washington's old way of doing business is no longer acceptable. Entertainment moguls don't have an absolute right to glorify murder while spreading mayhem in young minds across America. And our Bill of Rights does not guarantee gun manufacturers the absolute right to sell military-style, high-caliber, semi-automatic combat assault rifles with high-capacity magazines to whoever the hell they want. It is time for Congress to put children before deadly dogmas. It's time for politicians to start focusing more on protecting our schoolyards than putting together their next fundraiser. It's time for Washington to stop trying to win endless wars overseas when we're losing the war at home.

If he believes this, and if his beliefs can be so swayed, then the blood of these kids is on his hands.
