The President isn't going to beat the NRA and pass strong gun legislation:What's the other options?
I think it is rather obvious that nothing strong gun legislation that bans types of weapons isn't going to pass. We don't have the house and even if we did, the gun lobby is strong within the Democratic Party.
That said, what's the best plan forward? What alternative could get the votes in Congress. Something has to be done. I am not sure what is possible however.
