OBAMA CAN ONLY MAINTAIN A CRISIS ATMOSPHERE ON ANY ONE TOPIC FOR SO LONG: National Journal: Has The Gun Control Moment Passed? “At the start of this year, pressure was building for stricter gun laws with the country still in shock over the tragic shooting at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school. President Obama and gun-control advocates in Congress were ready to move quickly on legislation. Now, strong Republican opposition and a loss of momentum are putting the proposals at risk.”
Actually, most of the “pressure” came from the press and pundits who always support gun control. There was never any real groundswell of gun-control support. In truth, the NRA is closer to the public than Obama is.
