Skip to comments.Boston Mayor Says [Biden] Guaranteed...Obama Will Pass Major Gun Control Reform by End of January
Posted on 01/04/2013 2:06:18 PM PST by SoFloFreeper
Vice President Joe Biden guaranteed that President Barack Obama will pass sweeping gun control legislation by the end of January, according to Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino.
He said, Tommy, I guarantee you, well get it done by the end of January, Menino reportedly said at City Hall on Thursday. Theyre going to get it done.
Menino, a leading gun control advocate, has been recovering from a myriad of health issues over the last two months, but said Biden has called him a number of times while he was in the hospital. One of the calls came after the Newtown, Conn. school shooting and concerned gun control, the Boston Herald reports.
I understand the Second Amendment, the right to bear arms. But I dont understand how young kids should be able to get guns, Menino said, adding that Obama has no excuse not to pass strong legislation.

umgud guarantees there will be more guns sold by the end of January than any other time in history!
Because everything Biden says is 100% above board! LOL.... However I am sure Obama/DNC are right now planning every dirty trick possible to get New Gun Controls into law. The media is already on board.
The only thing Obama is going to pass by the end of January is GAS!
Pass all the laws you want.
Then try to enforce them.
Morons who know nothing about guns should not attempt to “legislate” guns.
I love to read these gun-grabbers claiming they “understand and support” the 2nd Amendment. They always say that right before they say they want to outlaw guns.
Is the plan to pass it by a vote in the executive cabinet? or, is it a vote of whomever is in Ø’s office at the time of passage?
Unless the GOP is bound and intent on turning into the Whig Party by passing such a thing, I call B.S.
You’re incorrectly assuming that the Constitution still applies. It doesn’t. Dear Leader, the media, and the cowardly Republicans in Congress have made it abundantly clear that the Constitution is meaningless now. Obama can do what he wants.
Okay, you pass your treasonous gun laws and people will enforce this law:
Therefore the United States Code at 18 U.S.C. § 2381 states “whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”
Indeed, that’s what I thought when reading the title.
The Congress “passes” legislation, the president signs it.
If the Constitution no longer applies, we can do whatever we want too. FUBO!
Notice he follows up with the non-sequitur of “kids being able to get guns”.
Laws are already in place to prevent “kids” from “getting guns”.
Eh...How does Obama pass anything ? He has ONE VOTE
Congress also legislates, not Obama, Obama Signs legislation passed by the People’s representatives.
I agree, I call this BS.
Executive Orders are my guess.
He seems to not understand how laws are supposed to be passed.
In particular, the power to tax comes from Congress, not the Executive branch.
Whay hasn't anyone brought up how blatantly unconstitional his act was? He's not dictator. Yet.
They are after our guns because they are afraid of us as a pillar against their tyrany. All this frantic emotional bs is just that, bs.
They villified the Tea Party for the same reason. They are afraid of us.
Knowing that means that we should do something about it!!!!!
read the tag line.
T’will be interesting to see if the Dems the NRA bought (e.g., Harry Reid) stay bought.
Mumbles is an idiot. That aside, I have 4 grandsons and there is no way they could get their hands on a gun unless they found the combination to my husband’s safe. Come on, the only kids that can get guns are kids with bad intent. Nothing is going to stop them.
Obama is President (unfortunately), not King (unless we allow him to be).
It's the alcohol, right?
Ain’t gonna happen........Too many folks up for re-election in 2014.........
The Present and Congers share authority under the law and can bring it to a big screeching halt any time they wish.
See Tommy...here's how it works. We're gonna get this dirtbag to shoot up a school and before the funerals are done they'll be beggin' us for gun control. If not we got plenty more schools, and movies and malls...you name it! Sooner or later we win, Tommy. I guarantee it.
Obummer the Kenyan can’ pass anything but $hit!Takes the House and Senate to pass anything . If they know what’s good for them they will back off !
A dictator always has a “rubber stamp” legislative body. They’re all afraid of him. Look at the people wetting their pants when Hussein (Saddam from Iraq, not the one in the white house) was calling legislators’ names to be taken out and shot.
Time for another “shot heard around the world”. They can’t kill all of us - uh, well maybe they can, but it may take awhile.
‘But I dont understand how young kids should be able to get guns’
First off, Lanza was a 20 yo adult, not a kid.
Secondly, what part of the fact that he killed his mother to gain control of these weapons does this liberal not understand?
Short of confiscation, there is/are no laws that would have stopped this massacre.
Interesting how one hears nothing about how poorly the children were protected from such an event. Might have to hold someone accountable.
I will not comply.
Not now. Not then. Not ever.
I’m done messing around.
NOTHING as contentious as gun control gets through the congress in two weeks, not now, not ever. I could take the time to explain the entire committee process and how the leadership can prevent any bill from not making it to the floor simply by not putting it on the calendar, and how the committee that would draft such a bill is stacked with a majority of pro-gun Republican's. But why bother? Some would rather run for the bomb shelter and declare the battle lost before even one shot is fired than do something constructive like keep the pressure of their Representatives and monitor the progress of any bill introduced in the House and Senate.
“Obama has no excuse not to pass strong legislation.
Except that he’s not in Congress and doesn’t pass ANY laws.
Presidents don't pass anything except gas.
He can’t guarantee anything except Boehner begging for his love. An EO, however, he can guarantee.
I hate to tell Joe that Barry does not have the authority to pass any kind of legislation. Neither branch of Congress is in the mood for gun control as they all know the mood of the country is not for gun control.
Diane Feinstein has been submitting gun control bills for years. She will submit her new one and it will go into committee and die there. I doubt there are even enough Dems willing to vote for it in the Senate. Harry Reid would be jeopardizing his next election by bringing it to the floor for a vote. Even if it passed the House would kill it.
100 million Americans already have guns, high capcity mags and loads of ammo. The horse is already out of the barn and its not going back in.
Still in all we should contact our senators and reps and let them know they better not even think about voting for any of this stuff.
We should force that issue on the Democrats and their runningdog lackeys. Tell us why these two pukes were talking about guns and Newtown before the shooting.
If they think Todd Akin's views were unpopular, just wait until they see how "unpopular" dems will be when they try to take away guns.
Let the libs OWN this. My wife's family are all democrat gun owners, and they are VERY serious about the second amendment. To the point that they would gasp, vote for a republican over this very issue.
It means that much to them.
(If you guessed Boehner, you are correct.)
If there where no guns, he would have used a bomb.
If he couldn’t get a bomb, he would have used a car.
No car, he would have used an ax.
If he couldn’t find an ax, he would have used a knife.
No knife, he would have used a hammer.
Crazy people hellbent on causing harm will cause harm until they are stopped.
“Let the libs OWN this. My wife’s family are all democrat gun owners, and they are VERY serious about the second amendment. To the point that they would gasp, vote for a republican over this very issue.”
Yep a lot of Dems own guns. Harry Reid is not going to bring this POS bill to floor for a vote. IMO. Although I would love for him to do it and have it voted down.
Illinois Senate was supposed to vote on gun grabbing and homosexual marriage but they adjourned without doing anything. Hope they stay adjourned indefinitely.
>They cant kill all of us - uh, well maybe they can, but it may take awhile.
They will run short of brownshirts to take us all out. If they try to do it through civil unrest then the body count will be very high.
I think they have already started by proxy of social engineering. The shooting stage may or may not come later.
I guess I know what my husband and I will be doing tomorrow. ;o) We already have our MA Fire arms licenses, we’ve just never gotten around to getting guns.
Does anyone really believe that the anti-gunners will be happy with a 10 round limit on magazines?
It has always been about handguns. Assault rifles was just a decoy to try and get their anti-gun foot in the door.
Once they get a ban on AWs then they will use the same reasons to go after handguns.
John Kennedy killed with a 5 shot bolt action rifle.
Bobby Kennedy with a .22 Iver Johnson Cadet revolver.
George Wallace wounded with a 5 shot Charter Arms .38spl.
Gerald Ford attacked with a 7 shot 1911 semi auto.
Edmond OK post office with two National Guard 7 shot 1911 pistols.
Ronald Reagan and Jim Brady with an RG-14 .22 revolver.
What do they all have in common? NONE over 7 rounds, yet after each one came a cry of panic to ban them.
Most of the dead in mass shootings comes from the first 10 rounds in a magazine. When the last 10 rounds are fired people are not standing around trying to find out where the noise is coming from.
****No car, he would have used an ax.***
NO-O-o-o, not an AX! Just because a man hacked to death twelve school children in 1812 at Ft Dearborn!
Boner and McConnell think we sent them there to get along with him, though.
Excellent point. Especially the second part :)
Zero may pass his gun control law, but I pass better than Zero every morning and I will treat and respect what he passes and what I pass with exactly the same respect.
