President Obama tonight said hes interested in seeing an assault weapons ban reintroduced, breaking his silence on the legislation, which has persisted in spite of at least five mass shootings during his term.

It should be impossible with the Republicans holding the House but with Republicans you are never safe.
I guess he could also just issue an executive order.
For some of us, the White Feather is Carlos Hathcock.
His silence has persisted, not the legislation. Typical, bad J-school English.
Can’t wait to be at the next gun show. Gonna be PACKED as always — probably even moreso.
It’s over to the extent the Obastard and his idiot minions have destroyed the United States as a constitutional republic (and I can’t see how you can dispute that, as he is governing primarily via EOs, bypassing Congress, and thumbing his nose at the Supreme Court, and getting away with it).
But, I’m with you: I’ll fight.
Let them think they have a mandate. They always overreach and screw it up. 2014 cannot come soon enough.
Not gonna be quietly...
I lost all of mine in a card game years ago. I found four aces does not beat five kings.
Oh no we don’t. I am not going quietly.
And I don’t “DO” burkhas.
Are Boner and the Republicans in congress going to go along with this? Like now we need amnesty, even Hannity agrees. WTF?
Not so quietly.
Now that he no longer has to worry about re-election he is free to fully pursue his totalitarian socialist agenda.
He’s not “breaking his silence on the legislation.” He’s mentioned it several times before to please the “upscale” part of his constituency and the same part of the constituency of the other party. And there’s been no such “legislation.” Quite a few bills attempting to be such legislation have failed.
The vast majority of voters in both parties push against any such ban. Firearms are in style, and a greater part of Americans are educated about the Second Amendment than for decades past.
All of that said, drive on. Run those stock and retail prices up. The trend and speech are fun to watch.
***Before they can be banned, shouldnt an asault weapon be defined.***
Years ago before the just before the California ban, Neal Knox exposed the fact that the Cali assault rifle law also included a ban on lever action rifles.
Eventually they will go after all of them.
Keep your powder dry.
I just noticed it and am hearing DiFi has plans to introduce a new AWB
Man, that's a damn shame. I had the same thing happen except I was in a rowboat in PA
Anyone really surprised??
How long until the GOP surrenders?
I wonder what their view is of punt guns:
