Obama is going to have many more large fish to fry than to get caught up in anti gun rhetoric early in his presidency IMO.
He will be standing next to the fire with no pan and no oil. His one and only hope will be to keep stoking the flames in hopes he can keep the Democratic fire hot until they show up. If he can do that with the stocks of our rifles, he will. He has to be shown that proposing restriction will derail the support he has from the masses.
