Biden: Gun violence proposals
to Obama by Tuesday

CBS News, by Lucy Madison

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/10/2013 4:25:12 PM

After consulting with a series of stakeholders in the ongoing debate over gun control, Vice President Joe Biden will present his recommendations for reducing gun-related violence in America to President Obama on Tuesday, he said today. The vice president, speaking to reporters before a meeting on gun violence with sportsmen and women, and just minutes before another school shooting was reported, outlined a series of the recommendations he said are emerging in the course of his conversations with various stakeholders in the conversation. Among those possible proposals include

NO NO NO!!! It is not gun CONTROL it is gun VIOLENCE we are talking about. You see, when you change the name in Newspeak it becomes something much more agreeable, though it is the exact same thing.

But we can address gun VIOLENCE by gun CONTROL but they are not the same things, though they are the same things.

Understand now?

Within hours of the tragedy in CT the usual idiots were out screaming for an assault weapon ban, a ban on "large capacity" clips and a demand closing the (nonexistant) gun show loophole..

Anyone want to guess what Bidens recomendations after a Month of study and a dozen committee meetings will be?

Obama is desperate not to let the death of 26 children and teachers go to waste. Even dead children are just a prop for a power grab to this monster.

Tragic as the death of these 20 innocent school kids is, we need to remind the libs that 334,000 babies were slaughtered last year by Planned Death.
If they really cared about violence, they´d shut down the slaughter houses of Planned Death.

Semi-automatic rifles are priced above my comfort threshold, but I just discovered that a basic annual NRA membership is not, so the NRA now has another member. I am not particularly interested in or fond of guns and don´t enjoy shooting. Joining the NRA is just one small way of pushing back against those evil clowns who are trying to infringe upon the Second Amendment. We all know that this crowd would never stop there, not even if they succeeded in eliminating the Amendment altogether. Next would be the First Amendment and everything else that prevents them from "fundamentally transforming the United States of America."

For reasons yet to be explained, the public has yet to receive all the facts about the Sandy Hook killer, e.g. psychiatric history, treatment, previous episodes of violence if any, etc. Yet the usual suspects on the Left are doing their best to maintain or drum up hysteria in order to rush something into law before Americans have a chance to debate and digest it. One of the very worst and most dangerous aspects of Leftist demagoguery is this trick of exploiting, aggravating, or even whipping up emotions and crisis mentality in order to pass legislation before anyone has time to figure out what is really going on. It is truly despicable, dishonest and manipulative behavior -and it is almost entirely found on the Left today. Of course tyrants of all stripes use the technique, e.g. the Nazis and the Reichstag fire, etc.

We must do our part as well. O Tuesday, we need to flood our Congress representatives and Senators with calls and letters demanding that control of the people though firearms restrictions is not acceptable. And we need to start protest. We need to let the liberals in DC and elsewhere that they are very close to the tipping point.

Just looked it up #12 -

~~From Wikipedia: The words "MOLON LABE" (???O? ????) in Greek as they are inscribed on the marble of the modern era monument at Thermopylae. The Greek phrase Molon labe! (????? ?aß?; approximate Classical Greek pronunciation [mol?`?n labé], Modern Greek [mo´lon la´ve]), meaning "Come and take them" is a classical expression of defiance reportedly by King Leonidas in response to the Persian army´s demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae. It corresponds roughly to the modern equivalent English phrase "over my dead body", "bring it on" or, most closely, "come and get it". It is an exemplary use of a laconic phrase.~~

Maybe they should require all firearms owners to be members of the NRA and pass through firearms training courses run by NRA firearms experts, tailored to the type firearm they own.

Maybe the government should also farm out a new and more comprehensive firearms background check procedure to the NRA, and have the NRA conduct the checks through an expanded government data base of people who the law disqualifies from owning firearms, included a data base waived from the medical records protection laws, so that the records of the criminally insane and other dangerous mentally ill people can be checked as that´s where the problem is.

The game plan for the Obama gun control, including coordination with the usual suspect organizations was clearly in place before the election, waiting for Obama to be re-elected. None of the prior mass murders provoked any where near the coordinated onslaught we have seen from this case. The plan is to overwhelm the Republicans and the NRA. I would also note that Obama has marginalized the Tea Party and the Republicans; pure Alinsky. Now he is going to marginalized his last major nemesis the NRA. We will soon see a flurry of bogus hunting and gun rights organizations that support "commonsense" gun control. The whole Biden conversation is a cynical attempt to pretend to be "reasonable." As I said the game plan was all preplanned. Unfortunately, Obama has a very good success record at this sort of thing.

A pair of gunmen shot six people at a West Side party early Saturday morning - one opened fire toward a back porch from an alley while someone else opened fire from the front door as party goers tried to run inside. The first to open fire was an unknown gunman from the alley, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said. People running back into the apartment building from the back porch were confronted by a man at the front door who also opened fire, he said. One of the six, a 24-year-old man, died from a head wound

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin served up some down-home Alaska charm — and a platter of moose hot dogs and bear-meat chili — on her new reality TV show, “Amazing America.” Hosting a television show is nothing new for the former governor, who began her career as a sportscaster for an Anchorage-area TV station and later hosted “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” on TLC. She promises the new show, which premiered Thursday, will be “unscripted, uncensored, unchained.” One thing’s certain: Palin is straight shooter — literally and figuratively. “I tell my kids, ‘Yes, we eat organic, we just have to go

Problems getting judges confirmed by the Senate have been a constant complaint for this White House — but this week, President Barack Obama’s aides are celebrating a confirmation count that outpaces President George W. Bush’s. They’ve had that goal on their minds for over a year, ever since chief of staff Denis McDonough and counsel Kathy Ruemmler reprioritized judicial nominations for Obama’s second term. John Owens, confirmed Monday to the Ninth Circuit, along with Edward Smith and Gerald McHugh, who confirmed to the district court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania last week, put them over the top.

There are still millions of people unemployed, and Obamacare’s delays will eventually kick in, making things worse. And Lord knows

“Hooray, hooray”! they said in print. 192,000 jobs were created last month according to the Department of Labor’s somewhat flawed mathematics that the media is eager to ignore. Because hidden inside that job gain is another disheartening sign for the workforce: the number of workers who could only find part-time jobs rose by 225,000. Leading the field in job creation, not surprisingly, was education and health services with 34,000 jobs—thank you Obamacare-- the retail trade with about 22,000 jobs—thank you Obamacare-- and temporary workers with 28,500 jobs —thank you Obamacare. So the good news is that if you’re independently wealthy

Democratic members of Congress and the Obama administration have extensive ties to Comcast and Time-Warner, the two cable giants currently awaiting approval from the Federal Communications Commission on a $45 billion merger. One that has gone mostly overlooked: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D., Nev.) chief of staff, David Krone, is Comcast’s former senior vice president for corporate affairs. Krone moved from Comcast to Reid’s office in 2011 under ethically questionable circumstances, TalkingPointsMemo reported at the time: Majority Leader Harry Reid’s chief of staff, David Krone, left a highly lucrative gig at Comcast before working for the Senator.

NEW YORK- The U.S. economy has regained all the private-sector jobs it lost in the Great Recession; it took six years. The Labor Department said Friday that America added 192,000 jobs in March. The unemployment rate remained 6.7 percent. After five years of being in and out of work, Tara Dublin found a job a few weeks ago as a hostess at a restaurant in Portland, Ore..

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and
