It would be a strange world indeed where a liberal such as Mr. Obama actually did something that made it easier for those with criminal convictions to acquire guns. He and allies such as Dianne Feinstein and most of the Democratic caucus have virulently pursued their goals of neutering the Second Amendment and depriving Americans of their right to own firearms.
In fact, this is a litmus test for being a Democrat in America. That, along with being pro-choice on the abortion issue. Prominent Democrats have shown great disdain for any of their colleagues who deviate from such dogma.
