    I am serious. 65M Americans elected you. If you can't kick the butt of Grover Norquist or NRA, you dont deserver our trust ...

      Nor a dictator. Nor an object.  He's the president and just a person.  This country is still madly, head-over-heels in love with its guns. Its rifles, its handguns, its super-cool, rapid-fire death machines. Protectors of the universe, all.

      I hate 'em all and hope we can have some serious gun control, but to suggest the president can just make it happen from some mythical "bully pulpit" isn't realistic.

      I do hope we see some serious leadership.

        POTUS can demand action from the Congress and influence public opinion (Exhibit - A: Same Sex Marriage!). There is a national interospection on what we need to avoid such tragedies. POTUS Obama HAS TO DELIVER his own words. I am not asking for gun ban in US. I am asking that large capacity ammunitions, semi-automatic be banned, registration process setup for all gun-owners and a national database that tracks all legit guns. This isn't asking for much.
