Sucks to be you!
I’m guessing here that the answer is probably “no:”
Is the Obama administration planning another public push on gun control?
Vice President Joe Biden plans to meet with gun control activists at the White House this afternoon, according to his schedule.
It’s more likely that Joe Biden is trying to kiss up to gun control types in anticipation of 2016. Barack Obama’s not the N-dimensional genius of his remaining acolytes’ fever dreams, but he’s surely bright enough to understand that gun control is dead for at least the remainder of the 113th Congress. And the 114th, for that matter; if gun control types are going to be going after anybody this election cycle it’s going to be heretical Democrats. That may be a personally satisfying endeavor for them (it might even be a reasonable long term strategy*), but it’s not going to result in less civil rights activists in the next Congress, which is pretty much the important thing right now.
So… Biden rallies the troops. And Obama probably shrugs. From his point of view, après moi le déluge anyway.
Plan B? Biden meeting with gun control activists today at the White House washingtonexaminer.com/article/2528109
