Newtown was the perfect opportunity to move forward. Why talk about the fiscal cliff or budget when you can focus on gun control? It's the perfect fill in for the next three months!
Aside from the fact that Obama said he would during one of the debates, and again if you look at the party make up of our state legislature after the election it should have been obvious.
Go read the newspaper more often.
