    At a press conference Monday, Obama said that Biden had presented the proposals to him. “My starting point is not to worry about the politics. My starting point is to focus on what makes sense, what works,” the president told reporters:
    Obama should do anything sensible and feasible on the gun control front; however, he shouldn't limit himself to being entirely tactical.  By also advancing sensible gun control measures that should pass but will not pass in today's GOP-controlled house, Obams can also set the stage for the ultimate defeat of those who representing the NRA rather than their constituents.  This will lead to a future Congress where pro-NRA representatives are gone and other representatives have learned to fear the voters more than the NRA.
