Will Obama push gun control in his State of the Union Address on Tuesday?
None of that got done, opening the possibility for plenty of recycling in Tuesday’s speech.
Gun control seems the least likely to be a repeat. It’s not an issue that would help Democratic Senate candidates or incumbents running in Alaska, Arkansas, South Dakota, West Virginia or Montana. . . .Given how much Obama pushed for gun control AND has continued to push for it up until very recently, I have a hard time believing that he will let the issue drop. On the other hand, the polling support for more gun control is weak. If he pushes for it despite these political costs, it will help show how fixated he is on the issue.
