46. If you were serious about the gun control "issue," you might see Obama's dilemma...

 

He, AG Holder (when in office), & Pelosi all publically advocated some unworkable "assault weapons ban," yet have to know this is not possible. So here they are, three very powerful office holders, revealing their wants & desires, yet knowing it ain't gonna happen. The only net effect is to present a powerful case that they want a ban with no real and viable constituency to support such. One might even be persuaded that tens of millions of gun-owners just might believe these powerful office holders are half-assed serious about the issue. That, my friend, is not a case for paranoia.

It IS a case for unwise, counter-productive politics, and a broad indication of being out of touch with reality. I hope these folks are getting better advice. For his part, the president now recognizes the RKBA is in fact an individual right, as the SCOTUS has reaffirmed. This hopefully marks a move away from self-destructive politics.
