President Barack Obama proposes an assault weapons ban and better background checks for gun buyers today as part of a package to curb gun violence one month after the Newtown school massacre. Will he fight for it, or just watch it melt away? I’m betting he’ll fight for it, big time, for a meaningful outcome. Why? Because I think he’s pissed off and determined to get this done. If the public is in the same mood something just might happen.
