One learns when one reads and listens. The President never suggested making guns illegal. He wants to ban high powered military type weapons (assult, etc). There is no reason a private citizen should have a need to own weapoons that fire dozens of rounds in a matter of seconds. Insofar as deporting illegal immigrants, the President has deported thousands -- that is not the answer. Both parties strongly believe immigration laws should be developed and enforced. This is not a party issue. What ideas does the President present that he knows will not work? True, he has presented many excellent ideas that are defeated by a bunch of clueless Tea Party members.
