Aha! Refocus like a laser on meaningless anti-gun propaganda! Obama proposes tougher background checks for gun owners after gang members in Chicago shoot 13, gunman with security clearance shoots 12.
He doesn’t even bother to explain how background checks would have prevented either of these crimes, and he doesn’t have to: anything that feeds into the hysteria is fine with his base and, sadly, many otherwise rational Americans.
Syria was so, like, yesterday.
