    Yet more failures from the undocumented worker in the White House.
    I have an idea for getting guns out of the hands of criminals: pry them from their cold dead hands.

    PROMISES, PROMISES: No action from Obama on guns - Yahoo! News

    How about, if criminals want guns they will get them. So don't criminalize guns. Criminalize criminals.

    Iowa Congressman, Family Safe After Home Invasion
    July 17, 2011 | A home invasion at Rep. Leonard Boswell's Iowa farm ended when his 22-year-old grandson fetched a shotgun and aimed it at the intruder, according to a statement from the congressman's office. No one was seriously injured.

    Oops!

    Submachine guns, handguns stolen from LAPD SWAT-training site
    October 17, 2011 - Police officials confirm that more than 30 firearms, stored overnight at a building considered secure, were stolen. 'It's embarrassing.... It's a lesson learned,' Deputy Chief Michael Downing says.

    LAPD got egg on its face, havin' to chase down its own weapons cache...
    :eusa_eh:
    Most of guns stolen from LAPD may have hit black market
    October 29, 2011 - Just three of about 30 weapons taken from a SWAT building have been found. Police had altered the guns to fire only plastic pellets, but it's possible to convert them back to lethal use.

    Just like someone buying a car from anotehr person. Let's hope they don't drive drunk and kill people with it.
    How many office buildings have been shot up with guns purchased privately? How many people have been killed by drunks in cars purchased privately?

    What do you think Fast And Furious was designed to do? Manufacture outrage among the people for the result of guns going across the border...thing is? Holder, Obama, and the ATF got caught in thier quest to cause a fever among the American people for more gun laws.

    The story in the link is expired and the quote in the OP has no context.

    Otherwise promises don’t ‘fail,’ people fail to keep promises, however.
