President Says Little about Guns In Last State of the Union Speech
Article first appeared at Ammoland.com
Ammoland – Preferring to talk more about climate change, President Obama’s continued his campaign for more gun control in his last State of the Union address this week, but it was only with passing reference and through visual cues that were touted in advance but that he never acknowledged verbally during his oration.
So, the pace set by last week’s White House gathering of anti-gun activists and CNN Town Hall meeting clearly was not accelerated.
To the contrary, while there was some grumbling on behalf of the anti-gun constituency, those parties had to be largely satisfied, having already been given their due.
National Shooting Sports Foundation sponsored a well-attended, two-hour State of the Union reception on Capitol Hill before the President’s address, providing an opportunity for your Government Relations team members to speak with dozens of lawmakers and staff from both the House and Senate and both sides of the aisle.
The topics of conversation: President Obama’s Executive Actions and National Shooting Sports Foundation legislative priorities in 2016.
