Skip to comments.Obama promises 'meaningful action' after Newtown school shooting (Obama's Reichstag Fire?)

Barack Obama wiped away tears at the White House as he expressed grief over the children killed in the Connecticut massacre and promised "meaningful action" to prevent similar shooting rampages in the future.
Obama has promised to act on gun control after earlier shooting incidents but subsequently done nothing implement any changes. Over the last four years of his presidency, restrictions on guns in particular concealed weapons have become more relaxed and gun sales soared.
There have been five major shooting sprees since he has been president, three of them this year. This one is different because the majority of the victims in the school in Newtown are young children, but the most recent opinion polls have shown overwhelming opposition to gun restrictions.

Barack Obama wiped away “fake” tears as he contemplated making a move on assault weapons.
This one is different because it occurred AFTER the election. He’s going to act now and you are going to obey.
Krauthammer just stated that the Brady group says Connecticut has the fourth most stringent weapons laws in the nation.
Gun laws sure work don’t they.
Fake tears and fake president.
How very Clintoonian of him..........
Don’t these far left lunatics understand that even if you take away every single gun in America it wont stop demented evil from killing. What do the left want, to take away guns from the police..then what, we have total anarchy. Chicago is a gun control city and every single day we hear about shooting after shooting. Yeah I dare these leftist loons to try to take away guns from Gang bangers. I can just imagine “Hey Mr Gang banger, can I have your gun pretty please” LOL Id love to see their reaction
I'm not sure I'd take bets on that.
Folks are always willing to give superhuman capabilities to government, but aren't willing to do the math the logistics requires.
Well maybe some original thinking like mental health reforms would be in order.
Let the Kenyan importer bring it. Rats lose big time in 2014.
How about dusting off old Sparky?
Fake tears and fake president

All those ‘sessions’ with Clintoon paid off...he has learned to ‘cry on cue’....recall the Ron Brown funeral when WJC was laughing and joking around till he spotted a camera and he started wiping away tears....
PHONIES....a POX ON ALL THEIR HOUSES.
Ban schools...seems like they are the main cause of shootings ./s
Barry has killed more kids with his pro-abortion votes than all school shooters combined.
is he going to mention the failed social policies of the left then?
How parents don’;t spend time with their kids, don;t raise their kids and prep them for the real world?
Kids are being screwed up and doing these acts because they are not rasied right.
I see this every day and how parents are too tired, get nannies, day care, can;t be bothered go out to eat and not teach kids to cook, clean up, respect etc
I can think of all kinds of “meaningful action” that would make the left very happy, but I’m hard pressed to think of any law that could prevent lunatics or mentally unstable from these kinds of acts.
I CAN think of lots of actions that would cut violent crime rates by garden variety criminals, but these actions would lean more toward criminal control, not gun control.
Having said all this, I’m gonna guess we will see a huge campaign for more gun control, some of which may come about.
Don’t taze me bro, but this was on Drudge. Many people agree with him on this.
You guessed it. Recall The incident in England several years ago? And besides, while this is bad, each day untold numbers of unborn and partially beor babies are being murdered on an assemblyline basis. And not a peep from the media.
Looked like it to me. He won the Peace Prize. What's next? The Oscar?
