White House weighs broad
gun-control agenda in wake
of Newtown shootings

Washington Post, by Philip Rucker

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/5/2013 11:17:59 PM

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

The people who love draconian laws banning guns ought to live in the wrong part of town, or work the night shift at a store near a freeway, or have an order of protection against someone, or live alone and look at the wrong person or wear the wrong clothes. They won´t, but they will use this to put all those people in jeopardy. Pick a side, but do it honestly. Giving your freedom to liars who truly think they are far better than you, is not only crazy and sad, it is a fundamental betrayal of what America tries to be and what millions of Americans fought and died for.

So, what they mean, for the responsible gun owner it will be tougher to get their legal 2nd amendment gun. So how are these new rules going to prevent illegal gun violence? In the end they´ll just cause the government to grow, create unneeded government jobs and add a cost to the growing debt. I wonder if these so-called leaders will ever just enforce the current laws, hold criminals to the highest standard and stop trying to score a victory out of a tragedy

4500 posts and counting on the original story. Most of it seems to be posted by mental cases. A few are reasoned but are hard to separate from the chaff.

Another brilliant move by the Won who loves to play a devisive political game - a great way to rally the socialist base, get donations, take people´s minds off of higher taxes and high unemploynebt . . . but will sweeping gun restrictions sell in the general population and the Congress?

I find these proposals very reasonable and absolutely necessary. In Texas there are no restrictions on buying guns and they enjoy very high incidences of homocides committed with guns. I am a conservative. Citizens need guns and have a right to them. I want the people who obtained them to be without a history of dangerous mental illnes and non violent in their past behavior. All these proposed measures could be applied and it would yet allow for a teacher or school martial to carry a gun inorder to protect the children. Nowadays there needs to be "air marshalls" in every public venue. Someone who is incognito but well armed to protect the public. In gun free zones the law needs to permit authorized people to have guns. Therefore, that one proposal I do not agree with.

While I agree mentally ill folks shouldn´t have guns, this isn´t practical on any level. Translation--libs will keep their guns and the rest of you can shove off, right, Barry?

I just saw Django and Follywood overwhelmed the audience with gunfire, dynamite, horse whips, blood, guts, exploding bodies, and more.

#6:

I totally disagree with “In Texas there are no restrictions on buying guns and they enjoy very high incidences of homocides committed with guns”.

Jeez. I don’t know where to begin. First of all, Texas has the same restrictions as VT/NH/ME that rank among the lowest violent crime rates in the nation.

As a minimum, Texas follows the same guidelines/restrictions that every other state follows per federal law which requires an FBI criminal background and court order check.

BTW: There are 14 states that have a higher violent crime rate than Texas and many of them actually do have restrictive gun ownership laws like NY/IL/MA and DC.

It’s all a matter of demographics. Look at the people in your state that commit the violent crimes and you will know why the violent crimes are being committed. They are the same type of people who commit 85% of all violent crime in this country.

Most gun crimes are committed by people who by law aren’t allowed to poses a firearm and almost all crimes in this country are committed by repeat offenders.

The FBI estimates there are over 200 million firearms in possession of over 100 million owners and 99.999999 percent of them have never been used to commit a crime.

Personal possession of firearms in the UK is extremely restricted but violent crime there is now higher than in the US because people there do not have the capability to defend themselves from Dirt Bags!

Look at the demographics of Dallas/Houston/Los Angeles/Denver/Chicago/St Louise/Buffalo/Philadelphia/NYC/Boston/Miami/New Orleans because that is where the problem is. It’s not the availability of guns. It’s the availability of Dirt Bags and Freakoids!

Obama’s goal is to register all firearms in this country so he can restrict the type and number you own down to zero.

Kafir

The second amendment was included because the founders knew that the people needed to be armed thus so that if the federal government grew to be tyrannical, the people would be able to fight back and overthrow it.

That the so-called "progressives" want to strip the people of the right to bear arms is indicative of their desire to institute tyranny. It´s obvious and all-over their policies and actions. They flat-out hate the constitution; the greatest government ever designed when it comes to individual freedom and liberty. What horrible people. They gain most of their political force from people who know almost nothing about history and policy. And with the progressives having a strong grip on the government monopoly on education, they keep the young folk in the dark and ignorant.

No 21 is exactly right. The goal is to get to the point where Obama, or some successor, can by executive order revoke all gun licenses, require the owner to surrender his guns, and assess a large penalty against him if he fails to do so. The fine will be large enough to bankrupt anyone who resists. This is the strategy they are attempting to use against Hobby Lobby by levying a million dollar per day fine.

All the reasonable arguments they are using are just pouring honey on the bear trap.

When are people going to get over the idea that Washington politicians have our best interests at heart? Any initiative they take up that refers to ´control´ or ´reform´ is designed to remove more of our freedoms. Yet people continue to refer to this as ´reasonable´ and ´well meaning´. A lot of people are very easy to manipulate. Suckers.

#22 you are so right. That is why my purchases now are face to face with no registration. When I pass on I plan to leave thousands of rounds to my grand children along with heavy duty military type guns, especially the Springfield M1A. I also like the M&M Ak 47 out of Colorado. And the Armalite A10 .308. At age 12 I am going to have my grand children professionally trained with a fire arm instructor.
Sooner or later bad days are coming. I want to leave an American legacy to my grand children and great grand children.
My hunting guns will not fire thousands of rounds, but the above mentioned will. There are guns for hunting and guns for fighting.
As in Viet Nam, I am locked and loaded.

Dude, the only way to "make it more difficult for mentally unbalanced people such as Lanza to get a hold of weapons" (are all those people doing the drive-by shootings in large cities imbalanced?) is to make it harder (impossible) for EVERYONE to get a hold of weapons, or better, ammo. Didn´t you learn in school that group punishment works? /s

It really is quite the rabbit hole to suggest making more laws, which admittedly do not work, to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the insane.

The law-abiding will be disarmed, and the criminals will have guns.

The insane will simply use another weapon to carry out their plans.

Think Prohibition. It did nothing to stop people from buying, selling, and drinking alcohol. The government will make criminals out of us all.

What ails this country cannot be fixed by gun control. The violence we see is a result of the culture. A culture that has been drenched in violence at every level but with no moral authority to put it into perspective. Gun violence is glorified by the entertainment industry. Violent killing is a money maker that has driven Hollywood to produce ever more horrific violence and now they want to promote gun control? The industry´s lifeblood is moral depravity in every form. I would suggest they take a long hard look at their motives for producing this trash and the part it plays in the breakdown of society.

They will know where to come get my guns, and I will know where to dispose of my ammunition inventory. See, reasonable compromise can work.

Number 38... actually, homicide is down in the US since the 80s. This is exactly what this administration, media, and all the rest of the commies want is for everyone to panic that gun violence is out of control and something HAS to be done. That way, they can come in and save us, don´t you see. They are coming for full gun registration, no doubt. Elections have consequences.

Number 6 and 30, of course the current laws aren´t working. That is what criminals do, they don´t obey the law. Last I heard, MURDER is still illegal in the US.

Many times it is the intention that is more important than the act. That is the trouble with #6s arguments. Registration is DESIGNED to create a list and isolate those who exercise their Second Amendment Rights. This is a camel´s nose that will then be used to tighten the noose in many ways - as evidence in case you are in a lawsuit, higher insurance rates, even higher rate of tax auditing. And finally systematic confiscation by Executive Order. We have been here before.

Can´t this gov´t do two things at once - figure out who gave the "stand down" order for Libya (that´s a pretty simple one, we´re just not privy to the info) and discuss how to keep guns from people who shouldn´t own them. From what I heard about Newtown, gun control worked. The kid tried to buy a gun and was turned down. Hollywood is hypocritical - it´s shown that when people see violence (tv, movies etc), they become more violent. This again is a side show.

The tyrant administration was going to make this gun grab whether Newtown had happened or not, the timing was just very convenient. Obama is deathly afraid that his reign will be challenged by the citizens when the more distasteful changes he has in mind are pushed into law.

Actions like gun control are only attempted by people who are too inept to do anything useful. We do know better than they how America should live and we will not comply with this blatant abuse of the Constitution.

I´ve said it before and I´ll say it again - if our elected officials do not believe in gun ownership and do not see our need to own guns for our own personal security, then they themselves must also acknowledge the lack of need for security and be required to perform their duties as elected officials and be seen in public, with no security details protecting them. Afterall, what are they worried about?

WATERLOO.

If Obama puts Gun Control as his first real iniative of his 2nd term - it is going explode in his face. The beginning of the end.

The gun-control solution to fix the problem should be to disarm every LP in the country, including the two trolls on this thread.
This ´debate´ isn´t about ´safety´ - the socialists constantly bleated that back in the 60s and 70s and 80s when they rammed through their incremental unconstitutional laws. Only the truly, deeply, ignorant think it´s about safety this time around.
Reality check - Lott and others published peer reviewed studies during and after the crazy gun-control talk of the last century - guess what? MORE guns, less crime!
If the trolls and communists were truly concerned about safety they´d be pushing to eliminate their 20k+ asinine gun owner harassment laws already on the books and recognize the 2nd amendment.
So it isn´t about safety, it´s about disarming the American population so socialism has an easy time taking over.
If they seriously wanted to know what was right, there´s tons of fairly current research available to the public.
You waste your time and breath arguing with socialists - they want their way, one way or the other.

The gun taker talkers will do just that--talk, talk, talk...
And then it will go away--they get paid too well to upset the many people who will take that well paid job away from them.
End of story.
May God Bless Americans and their right to protect themselves.

Ay Waco there was a holocaust of children

Holocaust in Hebrew means "burnt offering".

At Sandy Hook, one of the children murdered was Emile Parker, age 6.

So, why are there photographs of Emile Parker being hugged by Obama?

Photoshop is a marvelous tool, but seriously ...

Any of you who think the evil that is Washington DC is incapable of such planned horror as "sacrificing" children to drive the voters emotionally need to remember Waco and that Koresh could have been taken at any time away from the property yet the forces arrayed by Washington DC chose to burn children to death in a holocaust.

Please wrap your mind around that.

... and Washington murdering Vicky Weaver while holding her son in her arms.

... the Clinton death list

...in the last century over 250 million men women and children murdered by their own governments ...

A wag once said that the Feds´ war on the Mafia was because the Government didn´t like the competition. The current wars on private enterprise, the "filthy rich" making $250k per year, and lawful gun owners provide further proof of the point.

Hmm...a USA where the citizens will be deprived of guns, but where local and federal enforcement officers will have assault and automatic weapons to use against civilians. And the local police´s carrying out of Federal policies will determine whether they get Federal monies or not.

Sounds like Obama´s 2nd and 3rd term.

What possible use would knowing where every gun is and who owns it? I wonder, duh. Not that it would prevent any crimes or anything, but who cares. Also, I predict that the mere desire to own a gun is evidence of mental instability, therefore request denied.

Tired of magical thinking solutions that amount only to the penalization/hobbling of hundreds of millions of law abiding gun owning Americans to soothe the consciences of fool progressives (and even some people on this board) that think that if we just make the guns go away, read people´s minds, and predict the future via Obama´s mystical powers, we will all be safe and sound.

Get real and grow up!! The only thing that could have saved those people in Connecticut, Colorado, and elsewhere would have been a good guy with gun killing the bad guy with a gun. Until you come to this fact based realization, you are playing with illogical, magical, feelings based arguments and I don´t have time for you.

Is Obama still selling guns to Mexican drug cartels?

We still haven´t received any answers as to WHY Obama was arming the world´s most violent drug cartels. There are over three hundred people MURDERED thanks to Barack Obama´s gun-running.

Shouldn´t we get answers from Wise King Barky first?

Shouldn´t the (p)Resident of the United States be forced to stop selling weapons to criminals?

If the (p)Resident wants to have a "national conversation on guns," I suggest we start by having him answer questions about "Operation Fast & Furious."

Stop hiding behind Executive Privilege, Barky.

Answer the damned questions, you corrupt Communist Coward.

0bama targets law abiding American taxpayers and the merit of the Constitution & Bill of Rights at every opportunity. That is his established political policy pattern. Yet he was apparently re-elected to continue his same old ignoring of the Constitution, The Bill of Rights and of his oath of office.

Why go after responsible gun owners with new laws. Let´s face it, that is all they are really doing because they certainly aren´t enforcing the existing laws and they certainly aren´t keeping criminals off the streets as witnessed by the recent murders of firemen by a convicted murderer (oh snap, that´s right, he used a hammer...), and responsible gun owners are the only ones that actually follow laws. The Obamboozler is going after law abiding citizens because it is the path of least resistance. Law abiding people generally don´t fight back, so it´s just easier than going after the real criminals and potential criminals and placing the blame where it truly belongs. Just pass another law and hey, my job´s done, and if it furthers my agenda so much the better. It´s just like screaming “racism” at the drop of a pin. Even though there is no racism, reading “racism” into every obscure statement or word seems to work. So it´s a win-win for the Obamboozler who can use this to establish control over those “bitter hicks that cling to their guns and religion” while looking great to the dumbed-down Kool-Aid drinkers by couching it in something that sounds Politically Correct. And so he will continue to poke at the soft underbelly of law-abiding people because it´s just easier...for now.

This old saying can be applied by a little word substitution.´Your right to swing your fist stops where my nose begins.´ Could be restated as ´My right to live by the clear meaning of the 2nd Amendment does not need to be determined by any body of government or of individuals.´ My gun is to protect what is mine, meaning my family and me. My property is mine to protect if need be, and I am an old lady, not a crazed hobbiest or nutcase out to enjoy loud noises and any kind of blood. I have the right to protect my home, and a county or city sheriff will agree that I can do what I must. And I shall. Joe Biden and crew are probably all armed and much more dangerous than I.

Dangerous mentally ill people are the problem and that´s where the government should be directing its efforts. Everyone agrees that the dangerous mentally ill should not be able to purchase or possess firearms. There should be a narrow exception to the medical privacy laws so that medical records can be checked during background inquiries done on prospective firearms purchasers in relation to help identify people who are known dangerous mentally ill people.

Also the ATF Form 4473 that all gun buyers have to fill out could be restructured to require that all new gun buyers list three personal references who could be contacted, remember in each of the recent mass shootings just about all acquaintances of the perpetrators had knowledge that the perpetrator had serious mental problems but never told anyone because they were not asked.

While those initiatives might stop some dangerous mentally ill people from purchasing firearms, it certainly would not stop the the straw purchasers, and would not stop the dangerous mentally ill from stealing firearms from people who have a perfect right to possess firearms.

Obviously no gun control law is going to stop determined criminals.

What Obama and the liberal Democrats are really going for is the US small arms and related industries that are conservative Republican constituency groups.

Chances are the liberal Democrats will try to over reach on this issue, just as they did in the past, and just as they did before, will probably end up experiencing severe repercussions in the 2014 election.

All the argument about "protecting people from guns" aside, truthfully THAT is the farthest thing from gun grabbers mind. They want to disarm us to make us easier to "manage" and control.

BUT to the mental health hand wringers on this forum... WHO gets to determine what is "dangerously mentally ill?" Obama? A band of doctors with an agenda? You? How can you guarantee sane law abiding people will not be re-categorized as "dangerously mentally ill" and completely disenfranchised from their constitutional rights simply because they don´t live the life you think is sane and safe? You can´t, so stop trying to do this touchy feely driven, magical thinking nonsense. That is the slipperiest of all slopes and you are willing to dive down it head first.

I will not hand over my right to protect myself and those I love to you or anyone who feels morally superior/politically correct enough to adjudicate my fitness as a human specimen without my consent nor my input.

Every law made in Washington can and will be abused by the right people at their right time. Less freedom is simply not the answer... more freedom is.

If there wasn´t such an idiot in the WH and Washington politicians and other public servants did their jobs competently, citizens wouldn´t be feeling the need to acquire firearms to protect their families and property. They are doing the responsible thing. They must also believe that there is some threat emanating from Washington, D.C. and big government.

The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold former IRS subpotentate Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, while the House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. The facts in the case suggest very strongly that Ms. Lerner has earned the contempt of the American people as well as criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law. The question of whether Justice will do justice now rests with the Obama administration, in service to which Ms. Lerner organized and oversaw the repression of nonprofit activists under color of IRS authority.

With the rocky rollout of his health care law in a post-deadline lull, President Obama will move this week to shake up his health care team, accepting the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and tapping his budget director as a troubleshooting replacement, the White House confirmed Thursday. Mrs. Sebelius, a former Kansas governor who has served as HHS secretary for Mr. Obama’s entire tenure, was the president’s point person as his signature law stumbled out of the blocks in October.

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

Attorney General Eric Holder must be suffering from a sort of amnesia.

When Chief Justice John Roberts rewrote ObamaCare from the bench in order to save it, most of the ramifications were immediately apparent. But there was one aspect of the stunt that as a member of the Supreme Court Roberts should have been sensitive to: precedent. Having caved to a public intimidation campaign from the president and his congressional allies (as well as the media) Roberts signaled that the way to get a conservative justice to discard his better judgment and rule against constitutional law was to impugn the court’s reputation in the public square.

Begich also has made it perfectly clear that he has no interest in having his fellow Democrat out to his home state of Alaska, saying earlier this year that he doesn’t “care to have him campaign for me.” But that doesn’t mean he’s not looking for the president’s help. Begich has in fact submitted a long wish list to the Obama administration for agency decisions that he thinks would boost his reelection chances.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated
