Well, didn't we all think that was just another ridiculous distraction:
Appearing on CNN Friday morning, Rep. John Barrasso (R – WY) defended his vote to overturn the rule ... Although the rule was only put into effect in December, it had actually been in the works for years, and was a response to the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012.Barrasso: "It's interesting. This is a rule that President Obama came out with in December, long after he was a lame duck president. If this was something he was so committed too, you would have thought sometime in the previous 8 years he might have come out with such a regulation ... This is a new change by President Obama, a midnight regulation on his way out the door."
