At the Friday press briefing, a reporter asked White House press secretary Josh Earnest whether President Obama is finished degrading and destroying Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms via executive action [paraphrasing]. “Based on the most recent analysis done, the answer to that question is yes, the president has done as much as he can,” Josh Earnest replied. “That said . . .
I wouldn’t rule out that at some point over the next 12 months that the president’s team goes back to take another look and see if there is more that can be done, but I’ll tell you that there is nothing that we are keeping in reserve in terms of additional action that the president could take.”
How reassuring is that? Anyway, the White House wants it known the NRA missed its chance to engage the President in a “rational, measured, fact-based discussion” about guns when the nation’s oldest civil rights group passed on the CNN’s “Guns In America” town hall – without mentioning that CNN only offered the NRA one chance to ask one pre-screened question.
