Nobody asked whether we were happy about it

"Why Obama's Silence on Gun Control Pleases No One"

Actually, his acute muteness on the issue pleases us to no end.

Dear Leader is pretty much a toe-the-liberal-line gun-grabber, at least based on his legislative record (scant though it is) and previous public statements on the issue.  He's just too chicken to actually come out and say so now that he's President, since it might cost him some votes from the "bitter clingers", who ironically haven't been fooled one bit.

President Obama's already in so much re-election trouble he might as well simply lay all of his ideological cards on the table.  At least by doing that he won't lose what remains of the core supporters who are rapidly abandoning him over his many other broken promises to them on such topics as gay rights, closing Guantanamo, stopping the practice of rendition, and so on.
