Seriously? And you offer up a lame game analogy to boot?
Look, I can't make you believe something you refuse to. Saying something doesn't exist because of economic dynamics is the ultimate in making a general argument because your specifics cant be presented. It's like saying he isn't excused by others playing the race card. You know it happens, but it must be to make $$.
And back on point.....Obama has shown his predliction regarding guns. All guns. He has no re-election to worry about. This would, in the immortal words of Gaffe Biden be a "Big F'n Deal". His legacy would be defined by Healthcare and gun control.....a progressive 2fer. He has no reason not to go for this, and to go all out, as shown by the White House releases regarding the matter. Never let a crisis (even a made up one) go to waste.
And i think we would agree, the slope only gets more slippery when you start down it.
