As expected the, NRA wasn't particularly pleased with President Obama's gun control proposals. And why not? As Jon Stewart outlined on Wednesday night's "Daily Show", the organization has enjoyed massive influence on gun laws and their enforcement for quite a while.
If you've been asking yourself why the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms hasn't been more effective in controlling the massive amounts of illegal guns in this country, you're not alone. Watch part one above of Jon's look at the limitations that are "completely castrating" the ATF and part two below. Get ready to have your head spin.
This actually explains a lot. This should be the first thing we fix to try to reduce gun violence, and it should be something that both sides can come together on. I'm very surprised that we're not hearing anything about fixing this. It disgusts me.
