Peggy Noonan: Congress missed window to act on guns after Newtown [VIDEO]

On this weekend’s broadcast of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Wall Street Journal op-ed columnist Peggy Noonan said Congress has betrayed the public trust after the Newtown, Conn. elementary school massacre.

“I think a big part of this story is that people don’t trust Congress,” Noonan said. “After Newtown, there was a great bubbling feeling of, my goodness, there must be at least some things we can do legislatively to make this whole gun situation better. If the Congress, if the Senate had moved quickly on discrete, small bills having to do with background checks — I mean quickly, in the weeks after Newtown … They failed to move quick and small.”
