Unfortunately you are correct about the democrats pushing for more gun laws.
The president subconsciously reveals the truth in his statements. Obama said “Americans will not take “basic steps to keep guns out of the hands of people who can do just unbelievable damage.” Well this is true, the courts prevent detaining insane people until they have committed violent acts. We can’t keep insane people away from deadly instruments.
Additionally the American people do not want to restrict the rights of all law abiding individuals to satisfy the egos of plutocrats.
