    I could not have given that speech.  I'm going to choose to be optimistic that he'll get serious about gun control now.  I think I saw and heard resolve.  He's followed through on enough this far for me to give some benefit of the doubt.  Now is the time.

      the door. Having observed how the President works, I think there will be more to come. It will have to be played with his 11th-level chess master skills, though, in order to get past the massive wall of resistance the NRA & gun lobby & enablers will through up.

      I also think/hope this will be the tipping point for the American people. Enough is enough.
