Obama Administration Prepares Wrecking Ball for the 2nd Amendment

Screen shot 2013-01-08 at 10.21.09 AM
The Obama administration is making a big push this week to gather ideas for a comprehensive plan to curb gun violence, amid reports that the Vice President Biden-led task force is homing in on a host of gun control measures.

Biden plans to meet Wednesday with gun safety organizations and gun violence victims’ groups. The next day, he plans to meet with gun ownership groups as well as advocates for sportsmen.
Biden has also scheduled a meeting with representatives from the entertainment and video game industries.
The administration has vowed, by the end of the month, to produce a comprehensive plan for addressing gun violence in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., school shooting massacre in which 20 children and six adults were killed. The administration says mental health and the entertainment industry also may be examined.
But much of the discussion, and proposals from Democratic members of Congress, continue to center around gun control.

The Washington Post reported over the weekend that President Obama was considering measures beyond reinstating a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. According to the paper, the task force is considering measures like universal background checks for gun buyers, a national gun database, strengthening mental-health checks and tougher penalties for people carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors.

Asked Monday about the report, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney reiterated that Obama wants to “close the many loopholes in our background check system” and “supports congressional actions right away.”
Accelerated efforts to draft new gun control measures have alarmed gun rights groups, including the NRA, at the national and local levels. A separate last-minute effort to craft a restrictive semi-automatic weapon ban in Illinois was put on hold amid a tight deadline and intense opposition. On Capitol Hill, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein is again pushing a renewal of the federal assault-weapons ban.
But Congress is also slammed with a pressing set of deadlines regarding a host of fiscal issues — the debt ceiling, automatic spending cuts and the federal budget itself.

The president already has called on Congress to reinstate a ban on military-style assault weapons, close loopholes that allow gun buyers to skirt background checks and restrict high-capacity magazines. While the president may consider additional gun control measures, he also has ordered his administration to examine ways to improve mental health coverage and consider cultural issues like violence in video games and movies.

The White House said other meetings are also scheduled with community organizations, business owners and religious leaders.

  • Sounds to me like they are going to be working on both one and two. More than likely hollywood will be left alone though. It’s really control of us that they want. Not much to do with guns beyond the CONTROL part.

    If they can pass this it will only start for the eventual loss of ALL firearms next.

  • I posted on MSN a little while ago ripping their story on the mother who protected her 5 kids and shot a convicted felon when he came for her in her closet. I thought I came up with a pretty good little statement here….

    Now, the ONLY thing that stops a BAD man with a GUN is a GOOD man with a GUN.

    Go back 8 centuries.. The ONLY thing that stops a BAD man with a BOW is a GOOD man with a BOW..

    Go back 1000 years The ONLY thing that stops a BAD man with a sword is a GOOD man with a SWORD..

    Go back 4000 years The ONLY thing that stops a BAD man with a CLUB is a GOOD man with a CLUB

  • This is a back door to strip as many civil liberties as they can, the most popular reason friends and i came up with, is to make it easier to become the 67th Islamic ruled state

    I am very surprised when b00b said there are 66 states, not one news program caught that, especially fox and the blaze, we are in for the fight of our life for freedoms, even those that want free phones and welfare raises, the 2nd amendment protects ALL the other amnendmentsds

    ‘ Obama wants to “close the many loopholes in our background check system” ‘

    Why is that even an issue? We were told, reported the Newtown shooter tried to purchase a gun & was sent walking because of the waiting period.

    Sounds like current laws work. He left & got firearms another way, just how all others will do it if firearms are banned.

    Why are liberals so damn hard headed?

    What I have been asking and not getting an answer to, is how many of these murders have happened in a gun free zone? It seems to me that some one broke the Law. Why is it the Criminals, or future Criminals do not obey the Laws. First and only thing they need to do is do away with the Gun Free Zones. Second, allow Teachers to Arm them selves. That way we will not have to hire armed guards or Police to patrol the hallways in the Schools. Even in the work place. I worked in the Hough area, after the riots, in Cleveland, and just about every construction crew, had a few that were carrying. I believe that was why no one bothered us. On pay day, I think I was the only one not carrying. Even at a Political Rally there are guns, carried by body guards and police. Why not us civilians.

    My opinion is that CPL Joshua Boston has the correct attitude about gun control. He and I are on the same wavelength.

  • This leaves even more of a chill to the “..when they pry it from my cold dead hands” statement, doesn’t it? When they’ve proven they have no respect for human life, don’t care if our people are slaughtered in foreign lands (Benghazi) without guilt, ..don’t care if our neighbors and allies to the south are slaughtered with weapons our govt supplies, ..or could care less if they violate the Constitution by taking away our rights, ..they definitely don’t care if your hands are dead and cold when they take those weapons away! It’s all about THEIR AGENDA — nothing else matters to them.

    Alcohol has killed more people in history and we are still dealing with the effects of it. This will never betaken because it makes to much money.. Gun’s have never hurt anyone because guns don’t kill, it’s the people that use them that kill. Alcohol kills the person and the awareness of people to driving and kills both the driver and the passenger. This is never seen as a bad thing either. No one will turn on this and claim this as the killer as guns. Where are peoples brains?

  • This will leed to his demise
