Just a few short months ago, gun control legislation died in the Senate (thanks to a lack of votes from Democrats) after politicians like Senator Diane Feinstein and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg overreached with their gun control goals.

Regardless, President Obama isn’t letting a good crisis go to waste, and will be issuing more executive actions on gun control according to White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.
