Six Months After Tucson Shooting, White House Readies Gun Control Stance

by Kelly Chernenkoff | July 07, 2011


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.






I'm sure everything they propose will be "reasonable".

Tighter restrictions for US gun buyers, but expedited export licenses for anyone sending weapons south?

"Most gun-control advocates know that most gun owners are responsible citizens. Most gun owners know that the word 'commonsense' isn't a code word for 'confiscation,'" the president wrote.

"Commonsense" to whom? We already have enough commonsense gun control laws and then some, but they are not enforced. This is just about control. End of story.

Given his voting record on gun control, his outright lies about the number of U.S. guns going to Mexican cartels and his eight years as director of the Joyce Foundation (look THAT one up if you're not familiar) I wouldn't trust Obama any further than I can throw him.

Nice to see a page full of pro-rkba advocates at the bottom of the story.

..there's a lot of "Pro 2A, firearms owners" :cool: who voted for the idiot :evil: so in those cases we've got nobody to blame but ourselves. :fire:

Me? I'm a one issue voting person. Always have been.. always will be. I couldn't care less if the "Gilbatus'Dohalon" fly is going to be extinct in another 10,000 years.. or whether or not the Atlantic Ocean is 1% saltier than the Pacific Ocean.

My one issue that gives you my vote is whether you're a "Pro-2A, my right to keep and bear arms" politician.. or you're NOT! If you're NOT :uhoh: you've just been placed on my <deleted> list and I'll do every thing in my power to see you legally defeated.

Anyone who thought that Obama would come and go without attempting, or doing, something to further pee on the 2nd amendment, was not paying attention.

If all else fails, look for an executive order along the lines of the Clinton days.

And - don't count him out for a 2nd term either.

Yup. So they're talking about it. Still sounds like there's little here to discuss.

Until there's some plan of action (from them or from us) or even some concrete declaration or proposal or legislation to fight, it doesn't appear we know anything new at all.

"Talking about it" may be a codeword for "still a 'third-rail' we won't actually touch, but we're playing to our base" or it may mean, "we're about to launch a nefarious plan." But without something concrete, we're just going to end up circling the old "Obama hates guns" debate a few more laps, and that doesn't get us anywhere.
