President Obama keeps pushing for gun control. "I just want you to know that we are working on [gun control]. We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar, President Obama told Sarah Brady, the former president of the Brady Campaign, this past spring.
His push as been quiet but relentless.
Just this past week Obama signaled that he was going to just ignore two new parts of the 2012 Omnibus Spending bill. Although he signed the spending bill into law, he simultaneously issued a so-called "signing statement," a note that presidents have started attaching to legislation stating how they interpret the law they are signing or whether they believe part of it is unconstitutional.
Two of the Justices who voted to strike down the bans, conservative Antonin Scalia and moderate Anthony Kennedy, will be well into their 80s during the next administration.
While a couple of Justices have made it to 90 while serving on the court, remember the rare glimpse into Obamas views during the 2008 campaign when he referred to those bitter Americans who cling to their guns, cling to their religion.
It surely fits his earlier statement: I dont believe that people should be able to own guns.
Yet, despite all this evidence of an anti-gun agenda, recent articles by the Associated Press and other news media paint Obama as a moderate on guns and as somebody who wants to "protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens and merely support so-called gun safety measures.
Of course, they are wrong. Unfortunately, Obamas patient under the radar campaign seems to be working. He is fundamentally changing the courts and leaving them much more hostile to gun ownership. If Americans catch on, this could still be a major issue in the 2012.

“I just want you to know that we are working on [gun control].”
If at first you get caught, try again. He’s a democrat president so he doesn’t have to go to jail in between, for breaking the law.
Mitt Romney: “These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.”
That’s the government’s job, so that the people will stay in line.
Pulled his punch.
They are lying. They know the score -- and they write something else.
New York’ers should be proud!!! /sarc
My opinion is it doesn’t matter what Obama and the courts do to my Right to keep and Bear Arms...
I will Keep and Bear Arms regardless...
If dear leader wants to bite it off, there will be over eighty million Americans ready to make him chew it.
