(obama) we know that we can't stop every act of violence. but what if we tried to stop even one? what if congress did something - anything - to
violence? last month senate republicans blocked democratic proposals that would: -- prevent people on the terror watch list from buying guns, and -- require background checks for on- line gun purchases.
