Skip to comments.Obama to lay out first steps in gun policy talks after Newtown tragedy
Posted on 12/19/2012 3:33:12 AM PST by Innovative
With the shock and horror from Newtown giving way to anger and calls for action, President Barack Obama will announce his first concrete steps Wednesday in addressing the raging debate about gun policy.
Obama is expected to announce that Vice President Joe Biden will lead an inter-agency process to develop policy in the wake of the Connecticut elementary school massacre.
White House aides say Obama won't announce major policy decisions Wednesday, but will outline his administration's path forward.
"These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change," Obama told a packed auditorium at Newtown High School on Sunday.

Its easier to get a gun in Delaware than anywhere else in America I would bet.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Nope. The easiest place is Vermont or Wyoming.
.....then they came and confiscated your circa 1763 Charleville flintlock.....
No discussion of a mental health crisis. It’s a “gun crisis.”
When he starts doing the gun grab and people have their backs to the wall, maybe someone will take his acting like a Third World Dictator seriously and take his eligibility (or lack there of) seriously as well. The guy has pulled the biggest scam in US history and was allowed to do it .... a great source of his arrogance ... he figures if he can do that, he can do anything and no one will stop him.
Its about time they reined in these gun nuts!!
I’m sure obama’s policies will focus on God, better parenting and on identifying nutcases before they act out.
No word from the media on that story.
While the media is in full press mode, it's the same old small number of the same old people using the tragedy to call for the same old "gun control" "solutions" - they think that this time there will be a groundswell of popular opinion and that this will be a tipping point for their side.
There is no groundswell, people hear the news about "violence" in their cities and know that "gun control" is not the answer and not going to do anything well armed and protected hypocritical politicians and media "superstars" tell them about guns. Guns and ammo sales are the best prof of that.
Actually, it's great that they might spend next two years talking about gun control and violence, and that they will enlist so-called "conservative Democrats" like Harry Reid and others to "come out" in favor of gun control - this will strip any pretense during 2014 mid-term elections, and they'll be voted out of the office in the conservative districts and states.
The issue has been a loser for them, more so in recent years than before, and there is no government "giveaways" here, just government restrictions. There is a reason why they stayed awsy from this theme, but now Obama and Feinstein will drag them back into the swamp of "gun control" and the "conservative, pro-gun" Democrats may not be able to get out of it scot-free this time.
I'd love for them to keep having this "discussion" (and of mental illness, OTC or over-prescribed drugs, gory violence in the games, rap/hip-hop songs and Hollywood movies content, etc.) for the next two years while people are having to deal with the consequences of ObamaCare, taxes, regulations and mandates and failed economic and foreign policy.
This is great development - bring it on!
From the excerpt quoted, it looks like he’s punting.
Any mag restrictions, banning of firearms, banning of private party purchases, banning gun shows, etc will be ignored. We will not comply with any more infringements on 2nd Amendment. The gun shows will continue, private party purchasing, high capacity mags. Now what?
The liberal fascist idiots are exploiting dead children and pushing this issue at at time OF THE LARGEST GUN SALES IN HISTORY since Zero the Usurpering sodomite muzzie allegianced drugged out fraud was found to be squatting in the White Hut for the next 4 years, a rogue regime that could care less about the rule of law and Constitution. On Black Friday alone nearly 155,000 NICS checks, the largest in history.
Now ammunition as in pallets are disappearing and all kinds of goodies. The liberal fascists are already overreaching when much of this population was p*ssed already, then stunned stupor after election results, now double p*ssed. Some politicians are going to have close run ins and the fear of God put into them (putting it mildly) on this path.
Obama makes each disaster a worst disaster for us all.
Come and get my guns Obama...Oh that reminds me...you won’t find any, numbnuts!!!
Once Obama and Biden seize all the guns they can then give them to their new Muslim jihadist friends in the Middle East. Osama Bengunnazi and Joe Biden in Faster and More Furious.
