Response to Where Obama Went Wrong In The Gun Control Fight:
Problems; one, the administration never showed on their proposals could have prevented the Newtown shooting. Two, the Obama adminstration lined a string of gun control advocates who were flat out ignorant about guns. Vice President Biden seems to thing that a shotgun is the be all and end all of self-defense weapons. Senator Dianne Feinstein had an obsession with weapon which resembled miltary grade weapons but accounted for very few gun murders. Mayor Bloomberg did not and does not understand the difference between a semi-automatic weapon and a machine gun. After months of supposed debate, gun control advoates were still talking about high capacity clips. Three, the Obama alies could not be trusted. Senatro Schumer sabotaged the Manchin-Tommey admendment by spiking an admendent to allow for restoration of Second Amendment rights. In short, the administration seemed to have no interest is reducing gun violence, but rather only in gun confiscation.
