...Obama on Monday tried to undercut National Rifle Association leaders and appeal directly to their membership, claiming gun owners support the "common-sense" gun control measures he's proposed -- and urging those supporters to "keep the pressure" on Congress.
....spoke in Minnesota, in his first campaign-style stop as part of a second-term push for new firearms laws...
Without once mentioning the NRA by name, Obama on Monday said gun control supporters should tell their members of Congress that "there's no legislation to eliminate all guns."
Despite opposition not only from the NRA but a number of Republican lawmakers, Obama tried to claim Monday that a "consensus" is forming around the kinds of gun control measures he's pushing in Washington, in the wake of the tragic Newtown, Conn., shooting.

There IS a difference between FOX and the rest of the pack.
“...Obama on Monday tried to undercut National Rifle Association leaders and appeal directly to their membership” yep THAT’s gonna “work”!
Nothing Ubama does has anything to do with “common sense.”
That's mighty white of them.
FUBO, Lying sack of $hit.
Trust anything President You Didn’t Build That says? It might start raining shiny bright new silver dollars later today, too.
I’m a former long term NRA member who resigned years ago because I just got tired of all their requests for money, but re-upped around Thanksgiving for a 3-year period because they really do need it now.
I’ve got an answer for Mr. Obama: Fat chance!
How about "common sense" voter ID control?
How about some "common sense" gun control at the ATF (Fast-n-Furious)?
How about some "common sense" security control at US embassies?
How about some "common sense" border control, or immigration control?
How about some "common sense" spending control in DC?
“Obama on Monday said gun control supporters should tell their members of Congress that “there’s no legislation to eliminate all guns.”
Nice straw man argument since no one is saying that it does. Also soemone should LOUDLY correct the POS-OTUS when he calls guns like AR15s “Weapons of War”.
Let’s tell that @$$hat we don’t support HIM!
Or his communist agenda!
Since when have YOU demonstated any familiarity with “Common Sense”???
Honest, citizens, your God-given right to hunt ducks with up to two shells will not be infringed. Unless we can label you as crazy.
“...appeal directly to their membership...”
I’m a lifetime member, and he’s pi$$ing into the wind.
I have been a NRA member for several years, upgraded to Life Member last year and to Endowment member this year.
I edited my profile and I receive NO notifications or solicitations except those that I chose.
The upgrades in membership were done strictly by my choice without any coercion from the NRA.
I have also joined other 2nd amendment groups as well and my phone is not ringing and no SPAM.
Just the ones that would be effective against a tyrannical government like the one the jugged eared Kenyan wants to transform America into. FUBO!
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
