Obama Takes on Gun Control
The President is pushing forward common sense gun legislation. He signed a number of executive orders including outlawing high capacity gun clips, reinstating the assault weapons ban, requiring background checks for all, etc. The NRA will fight back - that should not surprise anyone. The question that we need to have answered is what Republicans will do. If they actually argue that this is all a big gun grab or some kind of attack on Americans' rights, I would be surprised if they win the policy or political debate. We'll see what happens - should be interesting.
