WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says President Barack Obama is not pushing for new gun control legislation even though he still supports a ban on assault weapons. Spokesman Jay Carney says Obama intends to focus on other ways to combat violence.
Carney's comments Thursday are the latest sign that Obama won't engage lawmakers in a drive for new laws, bowing to congressional opposition to additional gun restrictions.

uh, he doesn’t but he does?
We know his dark heart of dark hearts on this.
He was willing to let people die so he could have his anti gun narrative via fast and furious body count.
But, as with the Russians, “Wink, wink...I’ll have a LOT more flexibility when I’m re-elected.”
>> Obama intends to focus on other ways to combat violence
Mandatory frontal lobotomies and a HUGE tax for noncompliance?
... until after the election...
Not seeking new gun laws but will overturn the 2nd Amendment with the stroke of a pen as was done with federal immigration law.
Great Leader does not govern by the laws, therefore why would he seek a lawful means to his ends? Nor does this mean the Second Amendment is safe under his watch.
He better not, if he knows what’s good for him.
I am from the Joe Wilson School of Thought on that subject.
YOU LIE !
I love the smell of contradiction in the morning. As if no-one would notice!
Give him 4 more eyars and watch him run wild.
Then why is he pushing the UN Arms Trade treaty?
He's going to let the UN do it for him.
No, Obama’s going to screw Americans with the UN Treaty on Small Arms and get it passed by a lame duck Senate after November. That’s Barry’s and Hillary’s plan.
This guy is self-destructing day by day. Why don’t his handlers step in and impose a little discipline on the campaign? Makes me think there might be something to the theories that he wants to lose.
Today, he will let the U.N. camel’s nose under the American tent.
If he wins re-election, he will use that wedge to impose gun control.
It's been done repeatedly through history.
It's disgusting how you have to lawyer talk your way to the truth with the ruling party.
Throw all the bums out!!!!
Either the UN or the little coward will have the USDA declared bullets a toxin or OSHA declare them a “workplace environment hazard” ala Major Hassan at Ft Hood, and abolish them.
The wannabe street punk knows a frontal assault will be repulsed.
As he usually says, “We don’t need no steenkin’ laws!”
(Use agency rules and regs or stealth executive orders)
I got excited when I saw Obama not seeking new....but then it said gun laws and not term.
And, IMO we’ll see about that. Obama’s ENTIRE term thus far, has been “I’M NOT GOING TO DO THIS”, all the while, he is doing exactly that. He’s a freakin magician....distracting with one hand, and robbing you blind and screwing you over, with the other.
“No, Obamas going to screw Americans with the UN Treaty on Small Arms and get it passed by a lame duck Senate after November. Thats Barrys and Hillarys plan.”
They won’t get it thru the Senate. But just having the President sign the treaty has some effect of law in the US under other UN conventions. So it will give Zero a fig leaf to impose regulatory rules or executive orders that are much more burdensome to gun owners.
Indeed the left have been quite creative as of late to create scandal and story line to advance their anti-gun cause.
That being said despite their efforts to the contrary the left are losing the gun war. Too many Americans are buying Guns, and realizing new reasons to have rather than fear the tools. The left inadvertently are a large part of the reason too. They have made government more oppressive while at the same time less capable of protecting us from criminals. That alone is pushing larger numbers of Americans to find for themselves new systems of security.
That is of course a good thing for conservatism long term, because as Americans become better able to defend themselves they will not only need Government less, they will be better positioned to defend themselves from government agents as well the more common strains of criminals.
After the election (if he wins): “My views have evolved”...
Annnd trying to walk it back now that they’ve remembered gun control is now an overcharged third rail. Good luck with that.
yeah you can trust serial liars.....
Yep. He’s rehashing the same old ones.
If only outlaws are given guns by law-enforcement officials, then only outlaws will kill law-enforcement officials. If guns are outlawed, then becoming outlaws will be our only hope.
Everything from this White House is parsed and lawyer-like. He is hinting he will use an Executive Order, with the wording of this statement.
EXACTLY! He must be defeated.
Them two “eyars” he’s got is big enuff, he don’t need no four more;>)
he’ll just let his bootlicker chuckie s do it for him, while he hits another golf ball.
