White House tries to keep momentum on gun control
WASHINGTON (AP) – Less than a month after a horrific elementary school shooting, the White House is fighting to keep the momentum for new gun legislation amid signs it’s losing ground in Congress to other pressing issues.
Vice President Joe Biden has invited the National Rifle Association and other gun-owner groups for talks at the White House on Thursday. On Wednesday, the vice president will meet with victims’ organizations and representatives from the video game and entertainment industries. The administration’s goal is to forge consensus over proposals to curb gun violence.
President Barack Obama wants Biden to report back to him with policy proposals by the end of January. Obama has vowed to move swiftly on the recommendations, a package expected to include both legislative proposals and executive action.

White House tries to keep momentum on gun control
Make NO mistake America, they want our GUNS, and one way or another, Obama and Company are about to try and bring about the most restrictive guns laws they can, and if our Congress doesn’t stop them, We, The People are going to face some decisions that I don’t want to face, decisions that could possibly lead to armed insurrection right here in America.
I constantly get emails and Instant Messages telling me what a *right-wing knuckle-dragging, uneducated redneck villain” I am simply because I am a gun owner and support the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights as they were written by the Founders. All I can tell those folks is *DEAL WITH IT*. I am personally convinced that the LIBBERS are about to make an attempt at circumventing the Constitution, and I speak my mind.
Giffords, Kelly launch gun control lobbying effort
TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) – Tuesday was not just a day for Tucson to remember the victims of the deadly shooting that severely injured then- U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. It was also a day when residents could see firsthand the nation’s gun debate play out in a busy parking lot outside a city police station. SOURCE
Biden: Obama Might Use Executive Order to Deal With Guns
Vice President Joe Biden revealed that President Barack Obama might use an executive order to deal with guns.
“The president is going to act,” said Biden, giving some comments to the press before a meeting with victims of gun violence. “There are executives orders, there’s executive action that can be taken. We haven’t decided what that is yet. But we’re compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required.”
Biden said that this is a moral issue and that “it’s critically important that we act.”

Take a look at the facts about the recent shooters that have brought this rash of new potential gun bans and gun restrictions on those of us that have NEVER committed so much a ONE gun crime.
Ft. Hood Shooter – Was a registered Democrat and is a Muslim.
Giffords Shooter — Jared Loughner was registered as an Independent, had expressed a longstanding dislike for Gabrielle Giffords.
Sandy Hook Shooter – Reportedly was a Registered Democrat and hated Christians.
Aurora Theater Shooter — Registered Democrat, staff worker on the Obama campaign, Occupy Wall Street participant and Progressive Liberal.
Columbine Shooters — Too young to vote – both families were registered Democrats and Progressive Liberals.
Virginia Tech Shooter — Wrote hate mail to Pres. Bush and to his staff and was a registered Democrat.
Save the one exception, Jared Loughner, do you see a common thread in the shooters? This is strictly MY observation and should be taken as such, Loughner is *CRAZY* person, registered Independent or not.
In this group of recent shooters, I see a sworn enemy of the United States that was engaged in an act of Islamic Jihad, I see several *CRAZY* people, I see a couple of potential anarchists, juvenile anarchists, persons that were out of control, uncontrolled and for that I have to blame the parents.
I see individuals that are Democrats and/or Progressive Liberals, a group of people that are traditionally anti-gun voters that suddenly took up the gun and used guns to commit acts of murder and mayhem.
Isn’t it strange that the Obama regime conveniently ignores the fact that NONE of these heinous shooters were Conservatives, Republicans or members of the National Rifle Association and are self-declared leftists, Democrats and Progressive Libbers?
Isn’t it also strange that the Obama regime is going to try and punish ALL American gun owners that aren’t *CRAZY* or Progressive Liberals?
So, once again I offer this; do you suppose that ANY of these shootings could have been staged deliberately? Staged for MASS EFFECT and orchestrated by a regime that used weak-minded individuals that were already on the edge of insanity and under the influence of mind altering drugs?
Surely not … our government would NEVER do such a thing. Would they?
We already have more than enough gun laws and restrictions, we don’t need additional restrictions, just enforce the laws we have regarding criminals and the insane and gun ownership. And we might want to consider keeping guns out of the hands of Progressives and Democrats if recent actions are any indicator.
