In the wake of the shooting at the Navy Yard, Obama spokesman Jay Carney said the president is implementing executive actions and reiterated his commitment to strengthening gun laws, including expanding background checks to sales online and at gun shows.

Yes, it’s common sense to stop coddling protected classes and get rid of affirmative action. Fort Hood and the Navy Yard would never have happened before PC rooted into our culture.
Hey, Ben, CNN... is on the ball:
There are many... to blame for the Navy Yard Shooting--
And here at CNN... we give our viewers choices--
We report... YOU decide!
I think D.C. should enact much stricter gun laws. I think this would deter Navy personnel who have clearance after 2 shooting felonies from shooting up a secure military area.
More alarming than the fact that they are issuing executive orders is that they aren’t saying what those executive actions are. Go ahead Jay, tell us all what measures you’re going to take that would have changed anything. good luck with that.
If Rand Paul says he’s running for President and will permanently sign a number of laws (ie: outlawing Executive Orders, requiring Congressional Approval before ANY military strikes) I’m voting for him.
What is? Is Obama doing something with guns?
BARACK OBAMA REPORT CARD:
"F" - Job Creation
"F" - Economy
"F" - Foreign Affairs
"F" - Uniting Americans
"F" - Honoring The Constitution
"A" - Standing On The Bodies Of The Dead To Promote His Agenda
Is he contemplating (as need more public outrage/outcry) or is he implementing?
As far as I’m concerned, background checks, registration, and restrictions are simply sell outs to the path of least resistance.
Background checks are an utterly useless waste of time and money.
Upside down, Bizzar0world, continues.
Then: Matt Bennett, senior vice president at Democratic-leaning Third Way, says the Colorado senators mistake was banning high-capacity magazines even though Third Way has supported such a ban.
We do as good public policy, but we dont support Congress trying to do it at this point because its bad politics, Bennett said. Voters dont like it.
The anti-gun media cannot produce a 638 word 'story' without including major 'factual' contradictions.
It appears to me the problem lies in background investigations (BCI), political correctness, and the easy issue of security clearances.
Aaron Alexis had no business holding a “secret” security clearance and a badge to enter government installations. How did it happen?? Certainly the regulations are in place to do the job properly and to enforce the program. That is unless an Obama Executive Order superseded them. Identify the investigator who did his original and subsequent BCI’s, who reviewed them and ordered the clearance be given? Go to the roots and work up.
Government is just too big.
The power of the presidency needs to be severely restricted. I think we also need to take the attorney general appointment away from the white house.
Obama wants to disarm Americans that “cling to their guns and religion” While arming the terrorist that “cling to their guns and religion
Never let a tragedy go to waste.
D.C. has strict gun control laws. The only effect that D.C.’s gun control laws had was to ensure a large supply of unarmed victims.
Clearly we need some more gun control laws before we run out of unarmed victims.
A top secret background check? I didn’t see that. Do you have a link?
I read the article but it did not mention what those XOs would be. Did he not exhaust all XO efforts after Newtown?
