Biden Will Bring Gun Agenda To Obama \’By Tuesday,\’ Includes Background Checks

by Categorized: Newtown Date:

The vice president tells reporters that \”there is nothing that has pricked the consciousness of the American people\” as the image of \”little six-year-olds riddled…with bullet holes in their class\”

From White House press pool reporter Michael Scherer of Time magazine:

He mentioned several recommendations to deal with guns that he said he had heard repeatedly from stakeholders. This included what he called \”universal background checks, not just closing the gumshoe loophole.\” He also mentioned a call do deal with high capacity magazines. And he said, \”The last area is the whole subject of the ability of any federal agency to do research on gun violence.\”

He compared the current limits on federal data gathering with the 1970s restrictions on federal research over the cause of traffic fatalities. He said there was a need to gather information on \”what kind of weapons are used most to kill people\” and \”what kind of weapons are trafficked weapons.\”

    This gun stuff beats dealing with the whole fiscal mess we’re in, eh?

    Meanwhile, people keep dying every day at the hands of others with illegal handguns. How’s that great society thing workin’ out for ya?

      Yep, but how about people keep dying every day at the hands of illegals. The same people that want to ban what’s constitutionally protected, everyday support breaking laws that make it easier for those who are here illegally. Simply put, they want to make illegal what’s currently legal, and make legal what’s illegal. The moronic thought process of the secular regressive at work.
