I support President Obama in most things-- including his quest to ensure gun safety in the wake of the Newtown and Colorado massacres. I agree with what he says, but doubt his sincerity because of his lack of transparency and outright hawkishness when it comes to deployment of drones. They can be more devastating than any AK-47, and there appear to be no standards or requirements for their deployment-- even against American citizens.
He is not looking at the big picture. He is inconsistent. If he truly believes in background checks and other safeguards for gun purchases, he should also ensure accountability in government use of drones. Otherwise he's simply another politician droning on and on about self-righteous check marks for his legacy.
