The issue is not what laws might a President pass, but who might they place on the SCOTUS and how will that individual interpret the Constitution. Many Second Amendment cases have been decided by very narrow majorities, so it does matter who they nominate. I believe the strategy of the anti-gun folks is to remain quite until they gain a majority on the Court and then they can get their way regardless of what the American people want.
