We all know he wants to at the least... ban our "assault rifles" and other super deadly guns.... lol. But has he mentioned anything about it since taking office? I honestly thought he'd have made it one of his first executive orders as soon as he got into office.

I think the nationwide buying spree may have given the Dems a wake up call on that subject. Maybe.

Such as record breaking gun sales, 4473 shortages, growing rumble of discontent?

You think he can ban assault weapons by executive order?   You've been watching Frost/Nixon or something and think if the President does it it's legal?

If he hasn't, you can bet that bastard Rahm Emmanuel has.

yes, he has. specifically, one of the first things he did after inauguration was meet with the mexican president and promise to "work with them" in "stemming the tide of illegal US weapons into mexico". sharing information on US gun owners and dealers with the corrupt mexican government was one of his brilliant ideas on how to help...

Biden lives for gun control.

While they may not be talking about it publicly, you can bet they are drafting legislation behind closed doors.  I'm sure the Heller decision forced them to rewrite some of it.

They're not going to mention it until they get enough House and Senate members on board.  They will not mention it until it is certain to pass.

Go to the White House website..he does not have to verbally say anything about guns...


Even as he's signing the bill that makes semi-auto illegal he still doesn't have to say a word.

Obama doesn't have to say a thing.  It's in the Dem platform, he chose Biden and Emmanuel as his hatchet men, and the House and Senate hold Dem majorities.  What exactly does he need to say in order for gun control to go forward?!

Is he still in favor of banning all semi-autos?

That was in the agenda on his website 6 months ago.

No, they will just tack it on to some other legislation like they usually try to do. We won't know about it until after shithead signs it into law.

The BRITISH ARE COMING, THE BRITISH ARE COMING !!!!!!!!

I got this at Whitehouse.gov , under his AGENDA section

Address Gun Violence in Cities: Obama and Biden would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade.

Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent

IT'S COMING !!!!    Buyem before ya can't.

Which means the only way to stop it is to make sure it is not certain to pass.

Remind them of what happened to Clinton's legislative majority.

Gun control is probably pretty low on the Obama agenda. If he wants to get re-elected, and he certainly does, then he will avoid polarization that results with him in the minority. Has Obama ever taken such a polarizing position on anything?

He spoke of the panic buying saying "you won't have any trouble from me". Which is horse shit. As already posted they put AWB 2 on the white house website.

The Supreme Court ruled in our favor. Believe it or not, we are on the OFFENSIVE, not the defense. You guys all have weak intestinal fortitude, or what we called  in the Army "tiny heart syndrome". You give up way too easily and think the battle is already lost.

I think they're going to wait until they can get a more sympathetic supreme court.

They're agenda in the first term is to ensure they get a second.

So, it probably won't come right away, but it will come.

It wouldn't surprise me if Obama has already spoken to the congressional grabbers and advised patience.
