ABSTRACT
The article characterizes the U.S. Senate's bipartisan vote to require that firearms feature child-safety locks as an irrational response to the Columbine High School massacre in Littleton, Colorado. It can be said that the move by the Senate is a symbolic act to defeat pro-gun groups such as the National Rifle Association. The tragedy in Littleton, Colorado has been successfully exploited by the Democrats to push for mandatory checks for privates sales at gun exhibitions and trade fair. And because the initial steps against gun control in the wake of Littleton, Republicans have not known how to respond to the tactical moves of Democrats. But Democrats are not entirely free from the problem of gun control.
