There's probably room for some compromise between gun controllers and gun owners. But anyone who heard Obama demonize gun owners over the years is probably more inclined to think the gun control advocates will not rest until every law abiding gun owner is disarmed. Glenn Reynolds says it best:
Remember, none of this is about saving lives. It’s about the cultural domination of the people in flyover country, by their coastal “betters” who get a near-erotic thrill out of such domination, and who are reduced to blind rage whenever their efforts at domination fail.
The issue as it is being applied to the Orlando terrorism is whether suspected terrorists should be able to purchase guns. Never mind that the killer had passed all scrutiny and had been cleared by the FBI.
The NRA has a good position on the subject, and that's that a gun sale can be delayed while an investigation is conducted and anyone who is going to be denied his/her constitutional right should get a fair and prompt hearing. See NRA Statement on Terror Watchlists:
Fairfax, Va.— The executive director of the National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action, Chris W. Cox, released the following statement regarding terror watchlists:
We are happy to meet with Donald Trump. The NRA's position on this issue has not changed. The NRA believes that terrorists should not be allowed to purchase or possess firearms, period. Anyone on a terror watchlist who tries to buy a gun should be thoroughly investigated by the FBI and the sale delayed while the investigation is ongoing. If an investigation uncovers evidence of terrorist activity or involvement, the government should be allowed to immediately go to court, block the sale, and arrest the terrorist. At the same time, due process protections should be put in place that allow law-abiding Americans who are wrongly put on a watchlist to be removed. That has been the position of Sen. John Cornyn (R.-Tex.) and a majority of the U.S. Senate. Sadly, President Obama and his allies would prefer to play politics with this issue.
Meanwhile Obama plays politics to his fan base making ISIS look like the strong horse to its fan base.
