On January 16, the POTUS outlined a comprehensive program directed at addressing violence in our society. This wasn't a simple ban, full of loopholes, on certain weapons. Mental health, research, background checks, banning those same weapons (- loopholes) and enforcement of laws, current and new, are just the highlights.
January 16, 2013 will long be remembered in the annals of American history, not just for the program unveiled, but for the rapidity as well. To those in Washington spewing impotent excuses about how time consuming your job is-you've just been 'made'.
According to some, this was a BOLD move on the president's part. Yes, it was and Americans are responding. Band-aids and bogus cures for this disease called violence, which some claim doesn't even exist, are no longer acceptable.
