    What I heard was:
    • High cap mag ban
    • Military style weapon ban
    • No private sales
    At least, that's what he's opening with.

    What is a military style weapon?

    Our military has used revolvers, semi-auto pistols, M1 Garands, bolt actions, single shots, muzzle loaders.

    This should not come as a shock to anyone.

    But nothing about mental health?

    I wish they would dig their heads out of the sand and stop blaming the tool for the users actions.

    i have a feeling thats what they are counting on.....

    wait, you mean you actually expected them to address the real underlying issue?

    mental health reform does nothing to further their agenda.

    details on how it would be implemented or is this what will be sent to congress with the new term?

    How else could it be done. If Obama could someone do it himself, he is only proving he is a tyrant.

    What now ?

    It is his wishlist. The what and the how have yet to be determined with the SCOTUS and the Heller decision being the wildcard.

    I really thought he'd sign an executive order to implement all these things. Who's gonna fight it? Very few in congress are gonna openly be pro gun right now

    This nation elected him, knowing how anti-gun he is.

    With any luck, the GOP-controlled HR will block all of this BS.

    Sounds like the VP is heading up a team that will recommend something ASAP without lengthy studies and reports. In other words they will ram some feel good legislation through that will make us all "feel" safer.

    So can we just slightly tweak the Declaration of Independence and issue it once again yet????

    Two ways to look at it from an anti 2nd amendment perspective:

    (1) *Something* has to be done, so let's more-or-less reinstitute the AWB (ignorant approach)

    (2) Here is our chance to not only get some kind of federal anti-gun legislation passed, but we can get far more than we ever dreamed of... (deliberate approach).

    Of course, the media fans the flames and basks in the glow, that is what they do, and of course, they are generally left to begin with.

    Either way, I think this IS coming and SCOTUS might be able to curb some of it..after a long delay. I hope I'm wrong, but I think I'm right. Time will tell of course.

    I am REALLY trying to bite off smug comments to those who kept saying that Obama doesn't want to ban guns.

    Putting Biden in charge might actually be good for our side.

    Don't panic yet. He has always WANTED to do this. Feinstein has introduced this bill MANY times. Just because they want to, and handful of members have flipped, doesn't mean they are anywhere near the votes they would need to do it. The fervor will never be higher than it is RIGHT NOW. They are mostly glad to have something other than the budget to talk about.

    From the CNN story comes this little tidbit,
    You destroy YOUR own property all you want - keep your hands off of mine.
