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 That is unless an Obama Executive Order superseded them.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?
3 1/2 more years. Oy
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?
I only know that jay jay spoke, no specifics.
Facts don’t matter when the media isn’t telling the facts.
Very good point!!
Bozo is a supreme hypocrite! !!
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.
So what does he plan to do? Ban guns on military bases? Implement gun control in DC?
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...
Under the authority of complacent voters!!!
A Constitutional law expert would. Alas, Obama is no Constitutional law expert, which is why the University of Chicago never once trusted him with his own classroom in the 12 years he spent there.
Automatic shotgun? I need to get me one of those. Do they sell them on Amazon? I need delivered before Christmas.
Can we impeach him now?
Because any opposition to him is painted as “racist” and that’s the worst thing you can be. Worse than being a coward.
So...without knowing how this guy got his gun in the first place or whether any laws were violated in how he got it the administration is heading off again trying to fix a problem? And they wonder why they have no credibility.
Yes, but who has the cajones is the question...;^)
You're being a bit rough on John McCain, don't you think?
He can, because no one is stopping him.
At risk of sounding like a broken record: On-line sales and gun show sales of firearms ALREADY require background checks.
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”
This guy didn’t go to a gun show and he was a known nutcase.
Lock these nutcases up in a Psych ward.
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!
Another day, another EO. What’s tee time?
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...
It is being reported the shooter had mental illness,what is Obama doing to address that?
Hey, the media needed something to take the attention off Obama’s calls for War On Syria.
Yeah, like how he has overseen the increase in domestic oil production?? This idiot is an ENEMY of the 2nd Amendment. Nice try.....
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.
NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO SHOOT UP FEDERAL FACILITIES!
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??
Chief law enforcement officer (CLEO)= politician.
Ooops, like banning gun transportation on Amtrak.
Revisions to the Export Administration Regulations: Military Vehicles; Vessels of War; Submersible Vessels, Oceanographic Equipment; Related Items; and Auxiliary and Miscellaneous Items That the President Determines No Longer Warrant Control Under the
Notice emperor determines...this was determined and finalized in July
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)
Executive Order #2: All firearms must be covered with hot pink, fuzzy material of the kind used in stuffed animals, to make those firearms appear less “scary”. Have you seen those assault rifle things? Very scary looking.
I know. (Not blaming anything)
Obama should answer the question about Big Data first, and why the heck is Big Data for.
Executive Order #3: All DOD issued security clearances will require a successful background check before they are issued.
