…but Barack Obama seems poised to give it a whirl.  Citing support for "common-sense" gun control, Change.gov, the official website of the office of the president-elect lists the following approach: Address Gun Violence in Cities: As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important […]
