Don't Wait for the President

The quote in this linked article is just mind boggling to me.

Republicans would support an assualt rifle ban, banning high capacity magazines, and stricter background checks ……… only if Trump strongly supports them.

The president tends to pop his head up, support something and then retreat.

If you’re relying on an unreliable leader to provide leadership then you are wasting everyone’s time.

The beauty of a democracy is that you do not have to wait for a leader to make a decision.

Congress should pass legislation for new gun restrictions and pressure the White House to support their ideas instead of waiting for the White House.
