    They aren't dumb. Ignorant, but not dumb.
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    "...measures that would not need Congressional approval...."

    Frightening.

    The big problem is, at least in Congress, liberal/progressives never quit and conservatives rarely stand in the gap for long.

    "stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors"

    Now that should stop school shootings for sure. Maybe they should also impose even stiffer penalties for shooting yourself in the head after you kill everyone.

    They should also make the color 'Black' illegal.

    First; consider the source of this...The Washington Post? All-Righty then.


    Some of the options the administration is considering may not ultimately be included in Obama’s package. A White House spokesman said Biden’s group was in the midst of its review and has made no decisions on its final recommendations.
    Translation on the above quote: " I need to see how I will (look) at the end of the day and if what I do will entitle me to a library in my name."



    The administration is quietly talking with a diverse array of interest groups, including religious leaders, mental-health professionals and hunters, to build as broad a coalition as possible, those involved in the discussions said.
    Translation: "We need time to see exactly what the payoffs will cost us to get 'em on our side of the table and how to hide the payola"

    White House Plans To Overwhelm NRA With Rapid Victory

    Benjy Sarlin January 4, 2013, 4:04 PM

    The White House and gun control supporters are gearing up for a whirlwind month, with plans to pass reform legislation before outrage over the Sandy Hook massacre has a chance to fade.

    While the fiscal cliff has dominated Washington’s attention in recent weeks, lawmakers and activists are laying the groundwork for their big push. Vice President Joe Biden, tasked with heading a commission to investigate gun violence, has been quietly meeting with experts, interest groups, and public officials and is expected to release a set of recommendations within weeks. Boston mayor Thomas Menino, co-chair of Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, told the Boston Herald this week that an optimistic Biden had assured him that Obama would sign legislation “by the end of January.”

    “We had been led to believe their report would come by end of January, but we’re hearing they may want to have something out by January 15, even quicker than expected,” Mark Glaze, director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, told TPM.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    They will get some of what they want, if only because the Republicans are already worried about 2014

    In one of my letters to our Federal Representatives today, I included the following:

    "When a country even gives serious consideration to trampling the 221 year old Constitutional rights of hundreds of millions of law-abiding citizens because of the lawless actions of a handful of deranged individuals, then you have truly ceased being a government "of the people, by the people, for the people" and have made the full jump to tyrranical dictatorship. Perhaps it is time for our Representatives to collectively make a trip to the National Archives in Washington D.C. and familiaraize themselves with the history of this once great nation and the principles on which it was founded. I understand fully if you need to go to Wikipedia and look up the definition of the word 'Principles.'"

    Guns are like sex and air...its no big deal until YOU can't get any.
