As a former Obama staffer and now Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel once said, “never let a serious crisis go to waste.” Gun control advocates seem to be taking that to heart in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newtown, CT. On that note Vice President Joe Biden today gave away President Barack Obama’s next target for his adventures in executive overreach – gun control.
“The president is going to act. 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.”
Well that’s just dandy. If President Obama can’t get it done through Congress he’ll just do it himself.
Everybody seems to be coming to the gun control party….
So we have Senator Diane Feinstein’s bill to deal with, Iowa State Representative Dan Muhlbauer (D-Manilla) has gone ballistic (pun intended) over this issue. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is promising sweeping gun control measures in order to enact the “toughest assault weapon ban in the nation, period!” Former President Bill Clinton’s is calling out for gun control during a speech that had nothing to do with it. A genius of a Connecticut lawmaker calls for background checks… for buying AMMO.
At least people in Georgia seem to have the right idea.
Stop the madness!
This cartoon says it all as we consider the gun control hysteria going on.
Let’s use our heads folks and address the root cause of violence. Violating the Constitution won’t stop it.
