    No Action Yet From Obama on Guns Following Arizona Shooting

    From: No Action Yet From Obama on Guns Following Arizona Shooting - FoxNews.com

    The silence from the administration is drawing criticism from gun control activists and even some of Obama's Democratic allies. Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., told the president in a letter last week that the administration "has not shown the leadership to combat gun violence."
    This is why I hate NJ...Launtenberg notwithstanding...he's an idiot

    White House spokesman Eric Schultz said in a statement that the Justice Department is "consulting with the key stakeholders to identify common-sense measures that would improve American safety and security while fully respecting Second Amendment rights."
    Yeah, that phrase "shall not be infringed" is rather vague, isn't it?

    A government official involved in the talks said that suggestions under consideration include ways to improve the background check system dealers use to avoid selling guns to criminals, which activists say is ineffective and riddled with loopholes
    Wait...we were told that the NICS system would solve all of the problems of stopping criminals from getting guns! And that we need to expand it to include private sales...and NOW you're saying it's ineffective? Which is it?

    Obama said that "if we're serious about keeping guns away from someone who's made up his mind to kill, then we can't allow a situation where a responsible seller denies him a weapon at one store, but he effortlessly buys the same gun someplace else."
    Well, lets not let facts get in the way of a good sound bite...

    Helmke and others interpreted that as support for closing what's called the "gun-show loophole," which allows private sellers to sell firearms at gun shows and elsewhere without conducting background checks. Activist groups say that some 40 percent of gun sales are conducted without background checks.
    And here I thought 85% of statistics were made up on the spot. If there background checks for private sale aren't being done, then where are they getting their data?


    It's the usual tripe...but really bothers me when this garbage gets published....

    Umm they are afraid that, given their absolutely spoiled milk bowl of things that they can run on for re-election as the democratic commie party they are, they are probably very afraid to make it that much worse by even mentioning guns right now. If they win a second term you can bet your silly butt on it they will take everything they can just like they took our freedom as we never will know it again with the health de-care bill.
