Obama promises mayors unilateral action on guns

Mr. Obama “vowed to continue doing everything in his power to combat gun violence through executive action and to press Congress to pass common-sense reforms like expanding the background check system and cracking down on gun trafficking,” the White House said in a statement.

Perhaps if we held people accountable to the laws against trafficking, like Eric Holder, we might accomplish something… but probably not. I hate to be another voice in the echo chamber, but if gun control worked, Chicago would be a safe haven. If laws stopped criminals, there wouldn’t be a drug epidemic. If this was really about stopping violence, and not about control, we’d be looking at the causes of these issues.
