I haven't talked about gun control lately, since the shooting, with my friends. I'm opposed to most new gun laws, because I don't think they'll make any difference.<quoted text>
Do you and your liberal friends support or oppose Obama's new stricter gun policies?
Would you be willing to speak out in criticism of your president?
(I rarely hear of criticism from the left, and when they do (Juan Williams) they get fired.) So I would really be interested to hear of liberals who oppose some of the president's agendas.
And Obama can't do much from his position re: gun control. With an executive order, the most he can do is impose mandatory waiting periods and other things like that, but he cannot change people's right to own to guns. He doesn't have the legal authority.
