WOW Outreach Board of Directors
In Washington, it may seem like Congress has moved beyond gun control. After Democrats’ highly touted background check bill was defeated in a Senate procedural vote last month, lawmakers immediately turned their attention to other matters, like immigration legislation, the budget and — in light of the Boston terror attack — security.
But President Obama and his allies do not plan to let up, with Vice President Biden reportedly preparing to launch a new push for gun legislation and Obama’s campaign arm trying to enlist the public to support the cause.
As opponents of stricter gun laws rallied Friday in Texas for the National Rifle Association’s annual convention, Obama himself used a speech during his visit to Mexico to once again sound the call for new regulations.

“WoW is taking a stand in the our community!”
