Posted on 07/08/2011 2:02:09 AM PDT by The Magical Mischief Tour
Friday marks six months since the Tucson shooting which severely injured Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the White House is now hinting it's prepared to add its own voice to the gun control dialogue that tragedy reignited.
"As you know, the President directed the Attorney General to form working groups with key stakeholders to identify common-sense measures that would improve Americans' safety and security while fully respecting Second Amendment rights," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Thursday.
"That process is well underway at the Department of Justice with stakeholders on all sides working through these complex issues. And we expect to have some more specific announcements in the near future."
Carney didn't say how soon those announcements would come, nor what they might entail.

that’s what obamacare is for
If he wins reelection it very well could be...
My guess that their token gun-rights stakeholder is a kook from a liberal-formed group that has a 2A kind of name. Either that or a damned crooked police chief(s) from one of their urban cess pools.
Stakeholders from all sides?
Who is speaking for my interests? Obama?
How freaking DARE they try this, float this, even MENTION it with Gunwalker building up to the point where even the lamestream can’t ignore it anymore???
G-d help us! These people are cerifiably insane!
Freepmail me to be added to the Gunwalker ping list
Stakeholder? Liberals degenerate our language into goo-goo baby talk.
Amen, the only “gun control” issue that needs to be addressed is the arrest and incarceration of Eric Holder.
Then let’s see where the chips fall.
Does that include Eric Holder and Obama selling guns to thugs so they can be brought to Mexico to Kill thousands of Mexicans?
Do they really want to bring up Gun Control Now? I guess the way to control Guns being sold Illegally is to Impeach Obama and Holder and to send them to Mexico for Prosecution for accessory to Murder
obama first. SOMEWHERE in all of this has to be an executive order with his signature on it so that they could transfer funds bewteen different government agencies. I would bet my life on it.
Try them here for the murders of TWO American Law Enforcement Officers by criminals using guns obama and holder passed on.
Obama is a FREAK !
It will probably be through regulations. I can’t imagine they think something will make it thru the House.
So the Gunrunner scandal means nothing at all. Must be nice to have a tame media.
Someone needs to start some sort of Impeachment drive for our esteemed “president”; online petitions, something. I’d do it, but I’m not that tech savvy....
What on earth is a ¨key stakeholder¨?

Step 1: Ship guns to Mexican criminals.
Step 2: ?
Step 3: Gun control!
