    If you go to the Whitehouse.gov website, and click on agenda, and then click on urban policy, you will see that Obama still wants to reinstate the AWB.

    Diversionary tactics. If Obamination sees a chance without political suicide, he will make good on his campaign promises. Never let your guard down folks. This administration will take our Constitutional rights away given the slightest opportunity.

    Just waiting for the opportune time (e.g. best chance for getting what he wants) no doubt. Is this Obambi guy the President, oh really. Bad dream - hope it's only 3.75 more years

    Politics is off-topic at The High Road.

    You definitely can't trust the anti's. I like the fact I can watch 20/20
    and not get as angry. Actually I wondered if I could even watch it tonight.

    I believe he can't. I don't believe for one second he doesn't want to.

    This is not politics. Obama is not running for office. His underlings are stating what he says is his current position on the issue.

    Just because a thread is about an elected official does not make it necessarily political.

    Politics would be a thread about how Obama supports an AWB and McCain does not, so I am voting for McCain. That would be political.

    He will just call it some other Gobbledygook name like the "Private Weapon owners Safety and Contingency Act", thus just repackaging yesterday's stale bread. They are trying to do the same thing with the so called "Fairness Doctrine". Do trust this wanna be tinhorn dictator for a second.

    This is an interesting link that is on-topic. It's not a political debate (Repub vs Dem, etc.) but about how the administration views the issue of a new AWB right now.

    That SURELY is on topic for THR.

    However, I will remind y'all that we have about eighteen gazillion other threads in motion right now about pretty much the same topic, so let's keep these from getting too repetitive.

    I don't think so. The airtime is designed to scare the non-gunnies into fearing us'n gunnies, to bring into the fight those who might otherwise not have felt 'threatened' by us.

    They're working hard at that, and I fear that we lack the means to directly counter that message.

    The good news is that ratings are low for network news and shows like 20/20.

    The number one news network is more or less pro-gun.

    I have to give the white house spokesman credit. He did a very good job of steering clear of that ole coot. I didn't even know she was still scratching around.

    Hopefully news like this may alleviate the panic everyone has been going through.

    he never actually said obama is not looking to reinstate the awb just that he has been looking for other solutions like more police. his answer i thought kinda skirted the issue of the awb. and who was that lady asking the question? yikkes!

    No? Why do you think the white house staff (AKA the mainstream media) has been pushing all these "mass shooting" stories lately? You think all that stuff just started happening last week?

    I believe Obama is NOT lying when he says he will not reinstate the AWB.

    For one thing the time to "reinstate" the AWB is gone, that had to be done in 2004.

    Penning a NEW AWB (a likely worse one) wouldn't technically be "reinstating" the old one.

    Anyway, take heart ... they're clearly convinced that supporting an AWB right now (even after the events of the last couple of weeks) would harm them politically.
