On Wednesday, for example, Biden met with gun control advocates and gun-violence victims groups — then freaked out gun control opponents by saying that Obama is considering unilateral action to reduce gun violence. That spasm of angst was probably unnecessary — as Dave Weigel at Slate points out, there's little the president can accomplish by executive order — and the NRA won't budge in its absolutist stance against any new restrictions on gun ownership.
