Obama on Gun Control and Charleston

Like clockwork, after an inexplicable shooting every so many years Democrats are out in force calling for gun restrictions. As Obama and Clinton operative Rahm Emanuel said, "Never let a serious crisis go to waste."

Now I have heard it said ad nauseam on the left that certain conservatives are crazy for ever thinking that Obama or other Democrats would ban all guns.  But is it that crazy?  Is it crazy to think that if he had the means to do so that he would abolish the Second Amendment or confiscate all guns?  Is it unreasonable to think that a progressive would steer us more towards being like hallowed Europe?

Consider this article from The Atlantic where Obama says (in light of the recent tragedy)
“...once again, innocent people were killed in part because someone who wanted to inflict harm had no trouble getting their hands on a gun."

Hillary Clinton has said similar things.  But neither of them offer specifics about exactly what laws they have in mind to keep the bad guys from getting and using guns.  So let us ask: short of  removing all guns from the hands of citizens, what law would have prevented the murder of these nine victims?  Can we get a little help from progressives on this issue?
