Obama intentionally did not mention gun control in his State of the Union, but aides say that in the next two weeks the administration will unveil a campaign to get Congress to toughen existing laws.
At the beginning of his State of the Union address, President Obama tipped his hat to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, whos now recuperating in a Houston medical facility. But throughout the hourlong speech, he never addressed the issue at the core of the Giffords tragedygun controland what lawmakers would, or should, do to reform American firearm-access laws.
That was intentional, according to the White House. An administration official says Obama didnt mention guns in his speech because of the omnipresent controversy surrounding the Second Amendment and gun control. Tuesdays speech was designed to be more about the economy and how, as Obama repeated nine times, the U.S. could win the future.

Hussein’s motto: “Anything to hurt America.”
Somehow I think of the White House truly pushed for Gun Control....those they are trying to control, would push back.
An unarmed society...
Is basically prisoners of those that do have the power.
“It is unfair to let whites keep guns since it gives them an unfair advantage. In order to attain a level playing field and social justice, I want to see guns outlawed by private citizens. Even though I know that criminals and gangs will never relinquish their firearms, we must move to take away the white communities ability to resist our wonderful government takeover.”
Oh, let us PLEASE have this fight. The 0-Boy is getting some shoddy advice on this one.
Please ramp up gun control rhetoric, Obama! Please o please o please! If you do, you and your cronies will do down in a hail of votes come 2012.
I expect Dumbo to be Dumbo but will McCain or Graham go along with this?
“he never addressed the issue at the core of the Giffords tragedygun control”
Incorrect...the issue at the core of the Giffords tragedy is the utter faliure of sheriff Dumbass to act on loughners previous death threats.
Libtards use failure to enforce current law...as a springboard for new laws.
The narrative is that weak guns laws are responsible...
The reality is the Sheriff is responsible.
His failure is the direct cause for the effect.
Had the sheriff done his job..loughner would have been locked up.
Not gonna happen...
What is it about” congress shall make no law” that they do not understand?
Or, “shall not be infringed.” They don’t get either of those, do they?
This is an offshoot of their view of government as god.
In rejecting objective truth and morality in favor of individually defined subjective truth and morality,
what defines truth and morality is not God,
but who has the power of the state to enforce their “truth” on others.
Government, in this subjective philosophy/ideology, defines truth and morality and is therefore “god”.
In order to force their “truth” on others takes force,
and the ability of others to resist this imposition is not acceptable.
What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive?.... The [Security] Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers ... and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!”—
Is that from “The Gulag Archipelago?” I have always meant to read that book, but haven’t yet.
the issue at the core of the Giffords tragedy
That would be Mental Illness and inept law enforcement, NOT gun control
He can push it up his @$$!
