  •  The gun lobby's participation is a fraud. (11+ / 0-)

    The NRA and other gun groups have no intention of acquiescing in even the most minimal and rational forms of gun regulation.  Like their paid servants in the Republican Party (and some in the Democratic Party), they are not negotiating in good faith.  Just as it is pointless to negotiate with the Republicans in Congress, it is pointless to negotiate with the NRA.

    The president and vice-president should move forward with additional regulation regardless of what the gun lobby wants.  The people who support the NRA and its positions aren't going to be voting for Democrats anyway, so Obama has very, very little to lose by offending them.  On the flip side, he has much to gain if he can do something about our epidemic of senseless gun violence.  This is an instance of "damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead."
