    the white house push for gun control, two months later

    obtuse obama opined an op ed in today's arizona star

    Obama writes about guns | POLITICO 44

    "my administration has not curtailed the rights of gun owners"

    nor does it intend to

    indeed, the perplexed prez proceeds, "it has expanded them"

    We must seek agreement on gun reforms

    disappointed?

    "A gun in hand is better than a cop on the phone."

    A lot can happen to you before the police come, assuming you were even able to find a phone and call while not being interrupted. In my personal life, my sister is buying a gun because she wants to protect herself. She lives in a rough area. She's scared of being attacked and raped. She's sickly, so she can't exactly fight physically. She shouldn't be forced to fear for her safety. With a gun in her purse, she can just grab it and point. That's enough to get a thug to back off.

    You'd deny her the right to protect herself? That she must call 911 while she's being attacked? Why, don't you seem wise and caring.

    Re: White House to Push Gun Control

    Under fire for an operation that allowed smuggling of U.S. weapons across the nation’s border with Mexico, President Obama said in an interview that neither he nor Attorney General Eric Holder authorized the controversial “Operation Fast and Furious.”

    The Mexican government has complained that it didn’t know about the U.S. operation that allowed guns to illegally cross the southwestern border so they could track the weapons.

    The investigation into the program comes after it was connected to two weapons that were found at the scene of a border shootout that killed U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in December. Likewise, a gun smuggled from the U.S. was used to kill Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent Jamie Zapata, but it has not been determined if it was part of “Fast and Furious.”

    The controversial operation was the subject of a CBS News Investigation that reported ATF was allowing traffickers to bring weapons into Mexico in order to track them rather than arresting the traffickers. Obama said Holder has assigned an inspector general to investigate what happened, because he does not know who authorized the operation.

    thousands of assault rifles

    if the president and his ag didn't know they certainly should have

    he's been bragging for a month about his "partnership" with calderon to halt drug and gun trafficking across the border

    “our policy is to ram up the interdiction of guns flowing south because that’s contributing to some of the security problems that are taking place in mexico and what we’re doing is trying to build the kind of cooperation between mexico and the united states that we haven’t seen before”

    but it appears the doj is one of the druggies best dealers

    meanwhile, where's that gun control initiative?

    how's ms giffords?

    why have the party and their pals in the msm DROPPED her?

    pray for her recovery, her family, the other victims and their loved ones

    Re: White House to Push Gun Control

    today:

    Six months after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot, the White House is preparing to propose some new steps on gun safety, though they're likely to fall short of the bold measures activists would like to see.

    Anti-gun groups have been disappointed to see no action so far from President Barack Obama, who supported tough gun control measures earlier in his career but fell largely silent upon becoming president. Some activists were using the opportunity of the six-month anniversary of the Giffords shooting on Friday to speak up.

    Spokesman Jay Carney said that the new steps would be made public "in the near future." He didn't offer details, but people involved in talks at the Justice Department to craft the new measures said they expected to see something in the next several weeks. Whatever is proposed is not expected to involve legislation or take on major issues like banning assault weapons but could include executive action to strengthen the background check system or other steps.

    No, they'll just forget until the next silly misniformed silliness comes along. Too many on boths sides do this too often.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Re: White House to Push Gun Control

    yup, worst of both worlds

    just enough anti gun rhetoric to offend the clinger crowd

    and not an inch of action

    typical obama---all the political pain, no gain

    gitmo, anyone?

    civilian trials for terrorists?

    cap and trade?

    Slippery slope, my friend. You could be considered nuts, have your gun taken away, put in a mental instituion, have your property taken by the state (for your own good of course). Yeah, careful what you wish for, buddy.

    Fast and furious will be used against anything Obama tries. Obama and Holder are not out of the woods yet on that
