All my liberal friends in CA want to start the first state procedures to change the Constitution so maybe I am coming from that environment.
nothing but an outright ban on guns, with a collection of all the guns out there could really end gun violence. i do agree though if you did that obviously we would have less gun deaths. That is a reasonable assumption i think. But none of your gun show this, loopholes that will stop these incidents.
Obviously Obama is using the speach to hint at what he wants, or what he plans. Some sort of gun reform that will be meant to make us feel like the govt trying to keep our kids safe.
Never said it would stop them entirely, but it will reduce the number of criminals and crazy folks that can get their hands on guns (and make them available to others). Did you just completely miss that?
