27. Look behind the obvious.

 

Obama has zero to lose in his last year putting these forward.

They can be turned over in parcel or whole by the next President which is only a year away.

This is an election year. Democrats obsess and are riled up by gun control rhetoric. Hell look at DU the last few days. A significant portion of the posts are about the damned idiots in Oregon with constant fiery speech about white men with guns.

You can lead Democrats with gun control the same way that the GOP leads their voters with 'unborn children'. Planned Parenthood was a gold mine for them like Oregon is for Democrats.

The current front runner has a mixed history with her rhetoric on guns so this will give her cover if she is the choice in the GE.

It is just a big fucking game. And most of us fall for it daily as if it is really going to change our culture. Real change takes decades and real change of a culture which enshrined personal property and the protection of it with force if necessary in the 2nd Amendment will likely never be changed the way most anti-gun idealist hope for.

But it sure plays well on the stage in an election year.
