Obama is acting like the sane adult in the room. Everyone else thinks this is some black and white issue and won't even consider talking about guns. Period. The spirit of compromise that kept this country running for so many decades has stopped dead in it's track. I blame both parties but the Republicans are the main instigators. They will grind this country to a halt just to make a political point.
The NRA is instigating the problem. In the hands of the gun lobbyists. They don't care about the 2nd Amendment. They care about PROFITS!
