The President Needs to Lead on Gun Safety

Mitchell, Lincoln A.

Obama's first term policies were not far reaching enough: in light of the terrible tragedy in Newtown, CT, will Obama be able to shape gun control policy that is meaningful?
Making a serious effort to change gun laws will require Obama to shake off whatever timidity is left from his first term and begin his second term with the same audacity that propelled him to an unlikely election victory in 2008.
