In listening to the Obama speech concerning gun control, it is easy to see that he is a "do as I say, not as I do" kind of individual. Wayne La Pierre, NRA, suggests having armed guards in schools to protect teachers and children and Obama scoffs at the idea, yet he has armed security to protect his children.
Then he goes on to say that he will act quickly to make sure that weapons (firearms) are kept out of the hands of those who would use them to endanger the public. I had to guffaw just a tad at that statement as he and his head of the justice department had already sent guns to Drug Runners (I believe it was around 1,200 automatic weapons) and then lost track of them in their "Fast and Furious" scheme to see where they ended up.
To date, they still don't know, with the exception of the one weapon that killed an Arizona rancher on his own land. I find it interesting that citizens would put their hopes and faith in a man, a president, who rants and raves about gun control after letting so many high-powered guns end up in the hands of those that he thinks should not have them.
