    Not exactly, the meaning is the following :

    He pretends that the control over firearms will be strengthened, but nobody believes it will really happen.

    So, in a sense, what he said is a joke ("une farce")


    Not exactly, but getting closer. Whoever wrote the headline is saying that the debates over firearms in the US have been a farce -- everyone says the same things over and over and nothing changes. And now Obama is taking his turn at acting in this farce..but the author has little expectation that anything will change.
