Washington (CNN)Retired U.S. Army Gen. David Petraeus, who has long resisted calls to run for political office, is teaming up with retired NASA astronaut Mark Kelly to create a new group urging greater gun control. The two announced on Friday that they were launching Veterans Coalition for Common Sense to encourage elected leaders to "do more to prevent gun tragedies." The group will feature veterans from every branch of the military who are urging lawmakers to toughen gun laws, the organization said in a news release.
*Gag* - and this man is under consideration for the new administration?
OK... Petraeus was already teetering because of the conviction; THIS flips him over the cliff.
That’s exactly why I don’t want him as SOS.
At least Mitt isn’t a gun-grabber.
Guess Petraeus is out of the running for Sec. of State....
Oh yeah. I think I posted something about that at the time. Do we really want someone like ‘betraues’ who may not believe in the 2nd amendment being SOS? Uh, no. That would be like john f’n kohn-heinz-kerry lite. No thanks.
They can start with Chicago. ;-)
What is his proposal to stop people from making their own guns, from fairly simple equipment, like the WII Sten gun?
We don’t need more gun restrictions. We need the ones that are already there removed.
I wonder if Trump is aware of this. Probably.
Signs prohibiting the manufacture of home made firearms. LOTS of signs. That should work.

Does Petreaus truly understand what a “gun tragedy” is?
Maybe he could be presented/introduced to such by anecdotal evidence?
What a putz. I carry and protect my home.
“- and this man is under consideration for the new administration?”
Strikes me as odd, too. The man can’t be trusted with secret information. Trump knows this. I’m sure there are a few decoys and distractions going up the elevator.
As I have said before myself - even Mittens is preferable to Petraeus.
He now goes down in history as a guy who took a big fall because of... well, you know...
The bitch set him up. /s
The headline is a false flag. See my next post. This is actually old news.
He is, and oh how he has his cheering section on here.Some never learn.
Betrayus, send him home Donald he is done.
