First: “The president supports, as do an overwhelming majority of Americans, common-sense measures to reduce gun violence,” Carney said.

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 don’t support Congress trying to do it at this point because it’s bad politics,” Bennett said. “Voters don’t 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 That is unless an Obama Executive Order superseded them.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.

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.

Whatever Obama says is a distraction.

As I understand things the real problem needing investigation is why this crazy person was able to get a job at the Navy Yard.

He had an arrest record from 2004 in Seattle and 2010 in Ft Worth.

Why did the Navy give him a clearance?

Criminally insane persons should not be permitted to walk in a free society.

Be very careful with that idea. The Soviets' favorite method of silencing dissent was to declare their political enemies "insane" and to commit them to mental institutions, where their minds truly were destroyed. The New Soviets are on the rise here in America, adopting the tactics of their mentors.

I wonder if they'll get any useful idiots from the Navy Yard to go on a ‘crusade’ like some of the parents of the Newtown, CT children did.

What ever happened to some of those CT moms and dads who vowed to move Heaven and Earth in order to ‘save’ us from guns anyway? Funny how conviction disappears when the media attention goes away...

At risk of sounding like a broken record: On-line sales and gun show sales of firearms ALREADY require background checks.


Agree.

The MSM doesn’t want the general population to know this.

And oh by the way how about a background check on the current occupant of the WH while you are on the “ background check solves all”

There! That ought to stop them.

If that doesn't get the job done then issue another in stronger terms:

NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO SHOOT UP FEDERAL FACILITIES!

Such a person would already be “seeking treatment and medication” with “followup visits”.

It could be abused to silences dissidents but that’s already happening with profiling by the AMA, FBI, IRS, MSM...

The Department of Justice is proposing to amend the regulations of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) regarding the making or transferring of a firearm under the National Firearms Act. The proposed regulations would (1) add a definition for the term “responsible person”; (2) require each responsible person of a corporation, trust or legal entity to complete a specified form, and to submit photographs and fingerprints; and (3) modify the requirements regarding the certificate of the chief law enforcement officer (CLEO)

I hate to even say it, but widening the exception to doctor patient confidentiality seems to be something that would appeal to our overlords - for the greater good, of course.

I hope I haven't given them an idea.

Maybe you should underline it too... That’ll REALLY REALLY show ‘em...

But wait - then again, they CAN’T underline it, because it’ll offend nonunderlinists... I mean, it’s already in Boldface, and the unboldfacists are up in arms... oops... “up in arms” - that offends the antigunners.... WOW ... did I say “gunners”? Argh!!! We have to target our speech carefully - ARGH!! I said “target”!!!

And it’s in all capitals too!!! That offends the capitalists.... Hey... wait... that one’s OK, if “capitalists” are offended, right??

RE :”NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO SHOOT UP FEDERAL FACILITIES!”

How about that background check for gun shows bill that Obama/Biden, Feinstien and Toomey/Manson wanted and that died in the Senate?
Dems warned us that this would happen if we didnt pass it..... yaaaa.

Oh, what? He didnt get the gun at a gun show?

And had a military background clearance and ID to get on base ?
( How the ... did he get those??)

Never mind.....(Dems have a challenge with that argument)
