New book: Obama ignored gun lobby’s offer to help get rid of illegal guns after Newtown

Obama is too arrogant to work with the gun lobby.

What’s that the commander-in-chief keeps saying about Congress’s inaction and refusal to meet him halfway? To listen to the man, you’d think he’s Mr. Compromise.
But a new book suggests that when a real opportunity to put partisanship aside and work toward a mutual goal of the Left and Right arose, he remained aloof.

Paul Bedard writes in today’s Washington Examiner:

Choosing politics over policy, the Obama administration ignored a willingness by the gun lobby to help in the fight against illegal guns and gun violence following the 2012 Newtown, Conn. school shooting, likely missing any chance of a historic deal, according to a new book about the nation’s war over the weapons.

In “The Future of the Gun,” New York Times bestselling author Frank Miniter reveals that two of the country’s leading gun lobbies stood ready to work with the White House, but instead were pushed away by an administration that wrongly thought the country was on their side in banning assault weapons.
