Obama To Push Gun Control Soon

Click here to vote in this week's poll.

To the dismay of the Brady Campaign and other gun ban groups, President Barack Obama didn't address gun control during his State of the Union address on January 25th. However, Newsweek reports that "in the next two weeks, the White House will unveil a new gun-control effort," and that the White House confirms, "Obama will address the gun issue in a separate speech, likely early next month." According to Newsweek, Obama believes that gun laws have been "too loose for much longer than just the past few weeks" following the murders in Tucson, Arizona.
Precisely what President Obama might have in mind is uncertain. His post-election transition website advocated reimposing the expired federal "assault weapon" ban, but that ban would clearly be irrelevant in the wake of a shooting that involved a firearm not covered by the old ban.

There's been so many "cry wolf" attempts at this point, I will wait until I see it. All signs still point to no, no matter how much people want the president to vindicate their feelings toward the man.

Can we wait until something happens before we panic and run around like a bunch of chickens being rained on?

Jeeze.
