Fox | Obama: Those evil Republicans won’t let me subvert the 2nd Amendment

President Obama is suggesting that House Republicans on the issue of gun  control appear neither willing to work with him nor listen to the American  public on the issue.

“The House Republican majority is made up mostly of members who are in  sharply gerrymandered districts that are very safely Republican and may not feel  compelled to pay attention to broad-based public opinion, because what they’re  really concerned about is the opinions of their specific Republican  constituencies,” the president said in an interview with The New Republic.

Obama also said he can get 50 percent of public support for many of his  upcoming initiatives, but “I can’t get enough votes out of the House of  Representatives to actually get something passed. … I think there is still shock  on the part of some in the party that I won re-election.”
