With all the high-profile shootings in recent years, guns have again taken center stage in the national political arena. Gun control was a big issue in the '90s, but seemed to take a hiatus of sorts for over a decade.
Probably because it's almost impossible to address in any real way, hence rendering it a losing political issue. The House of Representatives is working on a two-year election cycle, so your local member of Congress probably isn't a "big picture" type.
Addressing the Second Amendment in any way isn't usually a winning proposition. People tend to love it to the point that they'd rather have you pry away their guns from their cold dead hands, than spend a single day on earth without them.

There aren't many who are coming out in support of gun control, but there are actually still two sides to this story in the sports community.

And a select few manage to occupy both spaces. Kudos.
