Of course they are trying to get legislation through. And of course "divide and conquer" is an effective technique. But they aren't doing all the dividing themselves. Gun owners are already deeply divided over this issue. I'm constantly amazed at how many gun owners misunderstand the whole "assault weapons" thing. Many, of course, simply won't be affected by a new AWB (which probably won't go through anyway). An increasing number despise the NRA. "Universal" background checks has wide support. Blaming the administration for these divisions ignores how prevalent they already are.
