21. I could give you why not after the bill written after Newtown failed, but not 8 years

It was only after the bill written by 2 Senators with A NRA ratings failed, that it was completely obvious that no legislation could pass.

That is important as legislation is stronger than what he can do through executive action.

Politically, this is a set of great steps -- that might be hard to reverse. The licensing is not even an executive order, but putting together an interpretation of the laws already on the books. Many other points involve working with the industry to do research on various ways to make it harder for someone who does not own the gun to use it. (Here, the real question is whether gun owners will consider this a plus or minus. If it is a plus and there were a way to make the cost very low to add it, then the market alone will support it.)
