    President Obama on Sunday said he would make gun control a priority in his new term, pledging to put his “full weight” behind passing new restrictions on firearms in 2013.

    “I'm going to be putting forward a package and I'm going to be putting my full weight behind it,” Obama said in an interview aired on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I'm going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.”

    In the wake of the Dec. 14 mass shooting at a Newtown, Conn., school, the president has launched a White House task force led by Vice President Biden to present proposals in January to help stem gun violence. Obama has said that he would seek a broad approach to the problem addressing the role of violence in entertainment and measures to improve mental healthcare.

    But he has also called on Congress to move quickly to reinstate the federal assault weapons ban and a ban on the sale of high-capacity magazines.

    Obama on Sunday repeated those calls and said he would meet with lawmakers on both sides of the aisles to see action.

    “I've been very clear that an assault-rifle ban, banning these high capacity clips, background checks, that there are a set of issues that I have historically supported and will continue to support,” the president said.



    “I'd like to get it done in the first year. I will put forward a very specific proposal based on the recommendations that Joe Biden's task force is putting together as we speak. And so this is not something that I will be putting off."

    Biden. Task. Force.

    Somehow those words just don't go together.

    Sounds like a great way to create jobs and help our sluggish economy.

    The President has said that he will support gun reform if it is what the American people want.

    “We’re not going to get this done unless the American people decide it’s important and so this is not going to be a matter of me spending political capital. One of the things that you learn having now been in this office for four years. The old adage of Abraham Lincoln’s, ‘with public opinion there is nothing you can’t do and without public opinion there is very little you can get done in this town.’” ~ Barack Obama

    Well, at least now the dude has two items on his agenda. Before a group of children got massacred by a crazy fuck, we only had one agenda item going into a 4 year term. And that deal should have been closed already.

    This dude is not a leader. He's an agitator.

    The scariest thing to me is the hate and fear mongering by stupid people like Stephanie and that other stupid people join with her in voting. Not only should some gun control be on the agenda of all elected officials in Congress those who fail to do so and actually take money and direction from the NRA violate the very essence of their duty to provide for the "common Defense and the general Welfare" of our people (Section 8, Clause 1 or Article I).
