Speaking at a Wisconsin state NRA meeting over the weekend, lobbyist Bob Welch said, "We have a strong agenda coming up for next year, but of course a lot of that’s going to be delayed as the 'Connecticut effect' has to go through the process."The NRA Effect - "Stand your Ground" and randomly shoot at cars.

And the slaughter of our children continues - tragedy, last night, here in Minnesota
OAKDALE, Minnesota — A gunman apparently firing randomly at cars killed a 10-year-old and wounded the child's mother and another woman Monday night, Oakdale's police chief said. The suspect was in custody.
Several bursts of gunfire erupted about 6:10 p.m. near a Rainbow Foods store in the eastern Twin Cities suburb, KMSP-TV reported.
The gunman fired at a car carrying the 10-year-old and the child's mother, Oakdale Police Chief Bill Sullivan said. The child died and the mother was wounded in the arm, said Sullivan, who would not say whether the child was a boy or a girl.
A woman in another car was struck and wounded in the hand, Sullivan said. Both women are expected to recover, he said.
"It's sick," Oakdale Mayor Carmen Sarrack told the Pioneer Press. "What can you say when a 9-year-old or 10-year-old is killed? ... People are devastated that this could happen in our city."
