Check out the approval rating on gun policy So I have been getting pretty discouraged lately by the media assault, but despite all the negative press for guns and the NRA, the public is not overwhelmingly supporting Obama's approach. I suspect as Sandy Hook fades and the political capital from it is expended, the public will support Obama's policies less and less. Not that he's let public opinion sway him in the past, I'm more concerned about the Senators and Congressfolk that have to worry about reelection. So don't give up just yet. We're winning even if we can't see it. Don't stop, keep the pressure on 'em.
