Enough is enough. Recently, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg stated that he will get his gun control agenda enacted by rehabilitating, not ousting, Republicans and other politicians addicted to the National Rifle Association’s threatening posture.

Simply put, they are addicted to the NRA because of the fear of being ousted. Are not 20 slaughtered children enough? It is time to make that fear of ouster come true.

There is only one group that can end the deadlock over gun control, and that is the American electorate. Surely, across this country, voters who love children over guns outnumber those who love guns over children.

If, with each election, politicians enthralled by the NRA — be they Republicans, Democrats or independents — are voted out of office, sanity would soon return to Congress and the deadly grasp of the NRA would be broken forever.
