    "The great object is, that every man be armed. [...] Every one who is able may have a gun." Patrick Henry

    IOW require any adult who either cannot or will not carry a firearm to be licensed.

    Obama also demanded a plan to cut the deficit, but did nothing with Simpson-Bowles after they came back with their recommendations. He signed an executive order requiring Guantamo to be closed by Jan. 20, 2010 and demanded that Assad go from Syria. Last I checked Guantamo is open and Assad is still in his palace. Even with the gun rights crowd going wobbly after New Town, he is unlikely to do anything with such a plan--especially since he ordered it to arrive in the run-up to another debt ceiling debate. The only things saving us from this man are his incompetence and inability to transition from campaigning to governing.
