Admin. Which Ran Guns Into Mexico Looks At Broad Gun Control Agenda


Of course, as usual, Obama is leading from behind, seeing as how Democrats have already introduced 8 pieces of legislation in the House and Senator Feinstein (D-has gun herself) plans to introduce a big one in the Senate

(Washington Post) The White House is weighing a far broader and more comprehensive approach to curbing the nation’s gun violence than simply reinstating an expired ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition, according to multiple people involved in the administration’s discussions.

A working group led by Vice President Biden is seriously considering measures backed by key law enforcement leaders that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks, and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors, the sources said.

Hmm. It’s already illegal to carry a gun within 1000 feet of a school. I bet people intent on mass murder/suicide will pay attention to stiffening fines. But, I really like the part about tracking the movement of weapons, something the agencies under Obama failed to do when it comes to Operation Fast and Furious.

To sell such changes, the White House is developing strategies to work around the National Rifle Association that one source said could include rallying support from Wal-Mart and other gun retailers for measures that would benefit their businesses. White House aides have also been in regular contact with advisers to New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg (I), an outspoken gun-control advocate who could emerge as a powerful surrogate for the Obama administration’s agenda.

The way I read that, having watched Obama operate since he started running for President, and having read his history, is that he plans on attempting to intimidate and bully gun retailers heavily. That’s his modus operandi.

Stanek said the meeting also included significant discussion of mental-health issues, violence in video games and movies, and the poor quality of information contained in databases used to conduct criminal background checks before issuing gun permits.

Don’t expect to hear a thing about the games and movies, the makers tend to donate a lot of money to Democrats. As for the info in databases, I wonder if we can expect The Government to collect even more information on law abiding citizens?

I suggest that we designate all federal buildings, including the White House and Congressional buildings, as gun free zones, whereby no one may carry a weapon, including law enforcement and security, except when responding to an emergency. If Democrats want to disarm the public, then elected Democrats should be disarmed.
