Gun Control

Obama has delivered several impassioned speeches on gun control and enlisted Sandy Hook relatives and other victims of gun violence in the days leading up to a key Senate vote. But, in the end, despite the support of 90 percent of Americans, a package of measures could not muster the 60 Senate votes needed for passage. Obama says it was just round one, but that could be wishful thinking.
