    completely shook him to the core.

    I fully recognize that if we were to give him a grade on gun control in his first term, it would unequivocally be a big fat "F".  But I have a very strong sense that this is a different President on this issue going forward.

    What would be truly positive?  Mandatory background checks for all gun purchases.  Improved data sharing and tougher penalties for lying on background application checks.  Limit on high-capacity magazines to 10 rounds or fewer.  Showing American citizens, and particularly politicians, that the NRA is an extremist organization that can be taken on without undue fear.

    Let's see what happens today and in the near future.

    332 - 206. Not a mandate, my ass.
