Passing Gun Control before the Sandy Hook Massacre Is Forgotten

Hosted by

President Obama and the New York Mayor Bloomberg are coordinating the effort to enact some form of gun control before the Sandy Hook massacre is forgotten. Bloomberg is trying to rekindle it with $12 million in TV spots in 13 states. Yesterday, the President took part in a so-called "Day of Action." But are they forgetting some major players: the people who actually own 300 million guns that will never be confiscated and never decay? The NRA has the loudest voice in opposition to gun control, but only four percent of gun owners belong. What about those who oppose "control" but care about safety? Are there ways to bring them on board and create a consensus?
