Obama Demands New Gun Control Measures Immediately
President Obama today demanded his administration create some concrete proposals to reduce gun violence that he says is plaguing the country. He tasked Vice President Joe Biden with leading the administration-wide effort to create new gun control policies.
“This time, the words need to lead to action,” said Obama, who set a January deadline for the recommendations. He vowed to push for their implementation without delay.
In addition, he is pressing Congress to reinstate an assault weapons ban, which expired in 2004, called for stricter background checks on firearms purchases and limited high capacity magazines.
Appealing to gun owners, Obama said he believes in the Second Amendment and the country’s strong tradition of gun ownership. And he said “the vast majority of gun owners in America are responsible.”
If that is the case, why is he punishing responsible gun owners for the criminal actions of irresponsible people.
The president Obama also wants his team to consider ways to improve mental health resources and address ways to create a culture that doesn’t promote violence.
The departments of Justice, Education, Health and Human Services, and Homeland Security will all be part of the process.
