True. However, to be fair, he hasn't taken those steps thus far. He did allow CCW in national parks, though, which was surprising to me. So far, it looks like he's been held back by the political climate being largely opposed to such measures (he's got an election to win). What a second term for Obama would look like re: gun rights is anybody's guess. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with two real choices on that matter, and both of them suck for the 2nd.
The Coburn Amendment to the Credit Cardholders Bill of Rights Act of 2009 was a 'rider' that probably would've been shot down by Barry had it been presented as a stand-alone bill. Kind of like this mag banning attachment to the cyber security bill, only that one was slipped in not for fear of it not passing, because believe me, O would probably sign it, but to as an attempt to avoid outrage, which has clearly backfired.
They do note that previous studies on the topic have been poor due to incomplete data and improper analysis methods, and it should also be noted that these are just the preliminary findings of their study.The Cliff Notes version is that, on most of the types of gun laws studied, they "found insufficient evidence" (meaning, whatever they were trying to prove -- ex. "Gun registration will decrease violent crime." -- failed their data analysis) to state that they had any meaningful effect on crime. Though, I'm sure that the CDC makes a habit of publishing NRA propaganda or something.
