When it comes to gun control, the NRA likes to claim that it represents the American public. Not true. Obama does.
A national survey conducted January 17-20 among 1,006 adults found that 52% feel that Obama's are about right (39%) or do not go far enough (13%).
By contrast, only 31% say Obama's proposals go too far. (No opinion: 17%)
Clearly Obama isn't a radical when it comes to gun control. He's got a majority of the country on his side. Hopefully this majority won't remain silent when it comes time for Congress to vote on requiring background checks for all gun purchasers, and other eminently sensible ideas.
