Nearly 4 months after Newtown NRA scores big over Obama

In the battle of President Obama versus the NRA - it looks like victory is going to the guns.

Not one piece of federal legislation has passed since the Newtown shooting rampage.

No assault weapons ban.

No limit on magazine capacity.

No background checks.

Today, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney brought up the background checks during the White House briefing.

"I think most Americans believe it makes absolute sense to check the criminal record of someone before they're allowed to purchase a gun,"  Carney said.

Recent polls say 90% of Americans agree with him. But there has been no legislation touching background checks.

Why has the victory gone to the NRA?

Outfront tonight: Jennifer Rubin, "Right Turn" Blogger for the WashingtonPost.com and Mark Glaze, Director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

    No one blew it since Congress was more concerned on getting over the fiscal cliff and funding this government. Congress is responsible for creating and voting on bills and not Obama. Looks like some people need to repeat government and civcs classes before broadcasting and posting anything that has to do with this government and politics.
