If ever there was a perfect chance for Obama to secure his place in history (for the second time)this is it.

Too late

It will not matter what the President and his government do to amened the amendment or restrict the possesion of arms, even if all the opposing parties come to heel The weapons are out there, and those that want them will endevour to conceal them. This is true in other parts of the world, including those nearer home, there are caches pf arms squirreled away waiting for the time.

An absolutely classic piece of TV, if anybody needed to know why America needs gun control desperately it's this clown!

The best way to deal with people like him is to let them talk, and make absolute fools of themselves in the process.

He certainly makes Davros look quite sane when he reaches the crescendo of his paranoid outburst...

President Obama knows that he hasn't much chance of getting Congress to agree to the changes he has proposed. The anti-gun lobby will mobilise to try to keep the issue on the media, in the hope that public opinion will make it more difficult for Congress.

Meanwhile the NRA of America will continue to try to find news ways to say that it's not guns which kill, it's bad people.
