    Obama taps Biden to craft new policies to curb gun violence in wake of shooting

    Never let a crisis go to waste. Obama is attempting to strike while the iron is hot and has put his buffoon VP out as a puppet so obama can pull the strings and Biden can take the heat. Here we go again, another shooting another attempt to circumvent the 2nd amendment, same S*** different day.


    President Obama on Wednesday tapped Vice President Biden to lead an administration-wide effort looking at gun control and other measures in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting last week.
    "The fact that this problem is complex can no longer be an excuse for doing nothing," Obama said.
    The move marks the first concrete step by the White House toward crafting new firearms restrictions.

    I guess Obama calculated that if Biden does it, he won't be the main 'hate icon' of numerous people, including independents, who don't want any sort of interference with the 2nd amendment.

    And maybe Biden thought that if he can pull it off, he will get more political capital, making him a eligible runner for 2016.

    While Obama has no further need to be popular or even consider the Constitution, that is not so of the congress critters, except those in very solidly blue/red states/districts. The biggest advantage of this "gun crisis" is that it takes the sluggish economy, huge national deficit/debt and all else of a "budgetary" nature off of the front page. It lets liberals and conservatives preach to their respective choirs, Obama can make his famous teleprompter supplied (assisted?) talking points and gives the political "pollsters" something to make money on - and yes, even Joe Biden gets to make a fool of himself. Yes they can!

    Bottom line is, you can't do anything to prevent these thing from continuing to happen without guns. No guns equals no deterrence.

    Gun Control Polls Shift After Tragic Shootings But Party Affiliation Is Key

    I think a good number of people want to look at tighter gun control laws. So you are wrong here. Also he wants to look at other areas where we can improve. So our President is doing his job. I am sick to death of hearing about the 2nd amendment and how it give right to unlimited gun ownership. Plus ask any rational person why they need a 30 or 100 clip and the best they can come up with is maybe target practice. Bottom line the President is doing his job. I guess he had the pusle of right wing America more than most of us thought. Cling to guns and religion, and that scares the crap out of a majority of Americans

    it is not a matter of unlimited gun ownership or unregulated guns. I am not for that by any means.

    I am however in favor of having a proper, unpoliticized discussion about how people should use their gun rights. And this can only be done if politicians stay out and let technocrats handle the issue and bring a raport that answers the following question: How to keep maximum availability to americans to exercise their 2nd amendment right while at the same time keeping society safer. No politician, Obama, Biden, Boehner, Rahm Emanuel, etc can do that. Why? There are many reasons why but the chief reason is because they are a idiots. And I am not using a slang version of the word idiot, I am using idiot with its real true meaning of people with insufficient mental faculties despite being perfectly healthy.

    Only intelligent, technocrat oriented people can come up with a solution to that question. And having politicians thrown into the mix to get political points won't do it. It is a right of americans and it cannot be politicized and have people take stands on the issue.

    Interesting that the WH already believes that they have a solution.

    All they need to do is make those pesky 'facts' fit their solution.

    Those who hate the Bill of Rights will consistently exploit a tragedy to obtain an authoritarian government...

    We live in a nation of 300+ million people - yeah, there are whacko's out there. The problem isn't guns it's the fact whacko's exist!

    Eliminating guns wont eliminate whacko's.

    It really shows how inept these anti-gun lunatics actually are... They could ban guns but what will they do next? ban knives? bricks or the damn pencil I could kill someone with?

    A gun is just as dangerous as a fountain pen... I could as easily kill someone with a damn pen as a could with a gun, which makes these anti-gun nuts argument moot or themselves completely ignorant.

    Hell, one could give me a book of matches and cigarettes and I could kill someone by making a knife. Give me a deck of playing cards and a book of matches and I could make a shotgun blast...

    Insulting the Bill of Rights won't make anyone safer... Besides we already have the technology to build objects that shoot projectiles... Hell, they don't sell guns in prison but yet prison inmates find creative ways to kill one another everyday.

    Banning guns is no solution, when the problem isn't guns - when the problem is people.

    They didn't have guns 500 years ago yet they still killed one another, as a matter of fact isn't one of the Ten Commandments Thou Shalt Not Kill (Murder?) did Moses have a gun, did anyone have a gun NO?
