Obama Gets It Right on Guns

A very strong and moving statement from President Obama today concerning gun violence.  Watch.

The President deserves great credit for the gun safety initiatives announced this week, but the steps are modest, and in the face of continuing opposition/cowardice from the GOP in Congress, only so much can be accomplished through executive action alone.

The effectiveness of the gun lobby is an object lesson in how a well-funded, highly-motivated interest group can run roughshod over the interests and views of the overwhelming majority of Americans.
